To Market

IMG_6719

I had a Bridal Shower to go to this weekend for my friend Lauran.  She lives in an area where she can walk or ride her bike to the store, so I decided a market bag was in order.  I was already working on an Everlasting Bagstopper to use up some old cotton.  I like the pattern, but I'm not liking how the colors are working out on that one.  I decided to go the simple route on this one and do it in all white.  I also used some cotton webbing that I had left over from another project for the straps instead of ribbon, hoping that will give it some added strength and stability (machine sewn…I hate hand sewing).  Add the things I bought for her off her registry, a ribbon and some tissue paper, and the gift was complete!

It was well received and several people at the shower commented on it.  We won't tell them my secret.  I turned it inside out to weave in ends.  When I went to attach the straps, I forgot to turn it right side out.  So, you know it, it is technically wrong side out.  I didn't have time to fix it (and didn't think that anyone else would know the difference).

  1. Cute! And practical, too . . . I may have to make one of these for myself — we’re trying to Just Say No to plasic bags at our house, as much as we can.
