Market bag October 6, 2008

I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to get around to finishing this bag. It has been sitting in my WIP pile for about four months. I thought with the markets coming up this weekend it would be a great chance to finish it off (and show it off at said markets!).  Here it is with my trusty shopping trolley – what a team!

A while back Mum and Dad went to the states and came back with a pile of cool fabrics for me as a gift. This great vegetable print was one of them. I thought what better way to use it than to make myself a much needed bag for shopping.  I made the denim handle from some scrap fabric I had from a jeans to shorts project in summer.  I zigzag stitched across the denim to hold the handle flat.  The handle is really wide, and long enough for me to wear it across my back.

The lining fabric is an old pillowcase of ours.

Because of the awful weather on Saturday I couldn’t take our trolley, but I could take the bag.  Here it has two bunches of rhubarb, a bottle of macadamia oil and a freakishly large bunch of silverbeet inside it.  It is the strongest bag we have now, and cool too!
