The Market Love Tote

A new bag! This was a total spur of the moment designed by me but based on the super handy ChicoBag reusable shopping bag. It looked like it would be easy to replicate the idea: a lightweight tote bag, but in Fun and Fashionable Fabric.

I love love love how it turned out! The use? Shopping at your local farmer's market! Hence the "Vermont Love" applique on the front. Fill it up with some serious VT love - we're talking Maple syrup, fresh eggs, apples, beets, strawberries... Oh I can't wait until summer.

Anyone who knows might see the irony in this design. I used "Central Park" fabric to make this tote, so really it should be a picture of NY on the front, but since I live here in VT... Vermont Love it is.

I even got a real live Vermonter to model the bag.
She's a trouper (and a good friend) to be sleeveless in a freezing wind chill. In April.

Hi JuneBug,

I love that bag! It would make a great bag for my crochet supplies or handsewing. I'm visiting for Fabric Tuesday. I'd love to have you come by for a visit.
