I love this pattern. Really, I think this one is so fun and versatile. Remember I did a scaled down version for Halloween? Well, I did get around to making one market bag for my mom for Christmas. I thought it was only fitting because she runs our local farmers market every summer and I know she'll put it to use.
I did add a bit of medium weight interfacing to the lining so it's a little more sturdy for carrying all sorts of fun goodies.
I think these colors are great and the Katie Jump Rope yellow dot print is really cool. This project is (like the pattern says) a really great stash buster. So if you're looking at your fabric stash and wondering how to move out the old and bring in the new, whip up a bunch for your friends and family and you'll be all set for that next buy!
I'm trying to use up some of my older fabric for 2 reasons:
Because I'm not really a collector, and mostly things just start to bother me if they sit around for any length of time.
I'm ready to bring in the new!
How about you? Are you itching to buy some new fabric?
