About the designer

I've been sewing, and doing hand embroidery since I was a ittle girl. Once I realized that if I could find and instruction book I could learn how to do other crafty things, there was no stopping me.

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • sew a seam
  • finish raw edges with a machine stitched hem, or serger

Pattern Description:

The county I live in recently banned the use of plastic bags by grocery stores. Now I already had several canvas totes that I use, but I sometimes found myself without bags if I stopped at the store unexpectedly. I've been making these Market Totes for a while now, and came up with the idea making a few out of a lighter wieght cotton, and keep them in a little zippered pouch in my purse so that I would never be without a bag.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • about 22" tall X 16" wide


  • 1/2 yard of 44" wide fabric
