I am finally home and between work and everything else that goes on around here I was happy when I finally had the time to sit down and make this market bag that I am sharing with you today. Some beautiful laminated fabric had arrived at the shop right before I left and I made the move to purchase some of it. Along with the laminated fabric, it also came in a matching cotton fabric as well. I loved how bright and festive the fabric was.... and apparently a lot of other people thought so too. By the time I came home, quite a bit of the fabric had sold. I was so glad that I had taken the time to make my purchase before I left! The shop carries several patterns for making totes, purses, and/or bags, but in the end I settled on this Amy Butler pattern. I have made a couple of Amy's patterns in the past so I was sure that it would work out very nicely using this fabric. The picture on the front of the pattern shows the larger bag... I chose to make the smaller one.
