Over the last few months I sewed for family, friends and strangers. Recently I realized that I needed a few new bags, too! I was tired of the reusable shopping bags I had, which hardly ever lasted more than a few months. Therefore, I decided to make myself nice, large and sturdy Market Totes. This week I sewed a matching pair, with south-western patterns on the outside, lined with cotton with tiny flowers. Inside each of them I put a zipper pocket, to safely store my keys and phone when I go to the farmers’ market. They turned out great:
A few days ago I took them to Trader Joe’s. Amazingly, our family’s food for the entire week fit nicely into both!
