I can still sew...
This weekend I had a large chunk of time to sew. And sew I did! I made the entire batch of the "Go Green Market Bag" that is pictured below. This is such a fun pattern and it comes together fairly quickly. I was able to complete 7 of them in about 4 hours time.


This bag is very large, which makes it perfect for the grocery store, farmer's market, or even an overnight bag. If you choose to keep the ties open (with a cute bow tied in front) it measures 19"x18"x4" which enables you to stuff it full and still comfortably wear it over your arm.


I think it looks very cute tied closed (as pictured in the top photo). Each bag has a large pocket inside for keys, phones and wallets. This particular bag is made of a 55%/45% linen/cotton blend and is lined with a recycled linen (recycled: previously owned but washed to be good as new). The other market bags I've made are all from the same linen/cotton blend (in brown, green, yellow, pink, and natural), but have 100% cotton linings that are all brand new (and totally cute).

This bag, along with seven others, will be available for purchase at the boutique on May 3rd. I hope it is on your calendars!

Nicole - this started as a pattern that I found but I've altered it enough that it stands apart.

I love coming to your blog and seeing all the crafty little things you do. I wish we would have got together to do crafty stuff when I still lived there :)
