I didn’t get any sewing in over the weekend, so I decided to cut out another Market Bag, and I ended up just sewing it all together tonight while Louie and his friend played pool.
The outside quilted fabric used to be a homemade pillow sham that someone made. Well, actually, I had to cut into the second pillow sham to have enough fabric.
The inside fabric was from one homemade curtain panel. The fabric is a very nice, quilt shop quality fabric.
There is a single layer, double pocket on the inside, and a double layer, double pocket on the front of the bag, with a magnetic snap closure.
I love that I used previously used items to make this bag. I think, with the magnetic snap, I have less than $5 invested in the whole bag, and about 3 hours of cutting and sewing. The mess is still downstairs waiting to be cleaned up. It’s not going anywhere.
Micki, from The Urban Recyclist has been making bags too. Micki has a new blog, and loves vintage sewing machines too.
