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. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 18" tall, 16" wide, 3.5" depth

I rise early in the morning and go down late in the evening. My desire between waking and sleeping is to make things pretty or make pretty things! I have been in secondary education for twenty years teaching high school art, helping young adults recognize their creative nature or trying to help them develop one. I thought I had given up sewing when my little ones grew too big to applique their clothes and make cutesy clothes for them. I rediscovered that love of creative sewing one summer two or three summers back when I wandered into a quilt shop with my sister (the queen bee of quilting) and saw a little clutch purse pattern that looked too simple not to make. I was hooked! The rest of the summer I was designing purses and have been doing so every since.
