Multi-Pockets Grocery bag Market Bag

from That's Artrageous
(9) Name: 'Sewing : Multi-Pockets Grocery bag Market Bag
Multi-Pockets Grocery bag Market Bag Multi-Pockets Marketbag

Pattern Description:

Get rid of those ugly plastic bags cluttering our countryside.
This bag is pretty enough to carry as a purse but strong enough to carry your groceries. Make one or make several, make them for gifts or give to a charity. The bags are a hit wherever they are used.

I head up a local organization of women who produce bags and back packs for orphans and women in Eastern European countries. The Multi-Pockets Marketbag is one of the most popular pattern developed to be gifted to the women.

The assemblage of this bag is extremely simple with time saving techniques. Each side of the bag is assembled complete with pockets and straps before sewing the two sides together which makes sewing much less awkward.

It is such a popular size and weight and so easy to make you will want to make several and give them out as gifts yourself.

This bag is not lined.
