a new bag for me

I made myself a new market bag this week.

It is such a quick and fun project to make. And of course I had to use some of my new (HR roses and Girl Friday writing line) and old (American Jane mono pez) favorites.

I've made these in the past, but this time I decided to fully line it with medium weight interfacing, and I love the result. It is a little stronger and holds its shape very nicely.

I took it with me Friday morning to my weekly scrapbooking date with my girlfriends. While they scrapbook, I sew and crochet. This week I brought along travel quilts that I was able to finish up for my shop.

And now it sits in the kitchen, waiting for me by the door. I just love it!

I love it Angela! I can't believe you used all that yellow pez in one place but now you get to look at it all the time! I bought that pattern awhile ago and you've inspired me to whip a few up - as soon as I have a minute!

The bag looks very useful, I would love to make a few for groceries. What pattern did you use?
