Firewood carrier

I'm a big fan of Martha Stewart, although that might be obvious by now.  This firewood carrier project was featured on one of her TV segments, and inspired me to make my own.

I chose a thick canvas fabric, and only needed 1/2 metre in total.  I selected a 1" dowel at my home improvement store, 2 lengths of 20".  I cut the fabric as follows, turned and sewed the raw edges on the long side and the hand opening.  I folded the strap sides over the dowels and sewed them.

And voila:
