More Market Bags

I came home from work the last two nights and worked on market bags for my coworkers, have orders for two more. They just love 'em! I think it's this fabric, it looks so much like patchwork. But people also want to go green.

I love the buttons, click to enlarge.

Someone asked me where I got the pattern. I just took a paper grocery bag, cut it open and used those measurements. The handles can be long or short depending on your preference. I made mine a little longer so I could put it over my shoulder. Cotton, quilt-weight fabric works, but these are lined and made from upholstery fabric. I still haven't used mine for groceries, I don't want to get it dirty. :)

Those are very nice, I wouldn't use them to haul leaky meat/veggies,etc in either!
