jane market bag

I wanted a more pretty bag to take to the market so I decided to sew up one of Alicia's Jane Market bags.
I really love how this bag is constructed particularly on the sides and that the optional cardboard is something that you put in after it's sewn up so the bag is washable.

It is lined in a light lavender pindot fabric and feels pretty sturdy though I don't think too many heavy items would work unless you sew it up in home decorator weight. It is quite roomy and has a front pocket which can carry a few essentials.

I'm envisioning this summers farmer market trips carrying this which played a part in my color/pattern choices.

My Mom has already admired this and mentioned Mother's day in the same sentence. I agree this makes a great gift idea.
And, it easily folds up for storage...always a good thing in my book.
