Kettlebags

I am picking up a few old tractor tire tubes after work and had an idea for a new piece of homebrew equipment:

Take a tube and make a skinnyish 32# sandbag; then place that sandbag in a slightly larger tube along with a 1" stiff manilla rope. Tie the rope into a loop, adjust the knot down inside of the tube & tie up the ends of the outter bag to create a kettlebag. Alternatively I have though about heating & bending PVC(same as homebrew rings) to use in place of the rope. Has anyone tried a scheme like this?
