Market/Tote Bags are Finished!

My daughter and I had a lovely time at the Kansas City Ballet last night.  We attended the Friday evening performance of The Nutcracker.  After yesterday's tragedy in CT, it was good for my soul!

This morning I was able to finish up the last of the market/tote bags for my kids' teachers.  I have a few last minute embellishments that I want to add, but otherwise am pleased with how they turned out. 

Bag #1 (Red Chevron w/ Black Floral coordinating fabric)

Bag #2 (Orange geometric circles with orange scroll pattern coordinating fabric)

And finally, market/tote bag #3 (pink and green paisley with pink and green striped coordinating fabric).

It's hard to pick...but I think the pink and green paisley might be my favorite.  I have a bit of yardage leftover and plan on attaching one big bow with tails to one handle for a bit of embellishment.

Do you have a favorite?

Now, I only have three (3) pairs of Christmas pajama pants to sew before my kiddos' "Polar Express" party on the 19th!  whew!  Tutorial to come.

Happy Saturday.  We are off to a corporate Christmas Party tonight.  'Tis the Season!


P.S.  If you are interested in a tutorial for the market bag click here.


  1. Those are super cute bags.
    The kids teachers are going to love them!
    I like the pink and green one the best too but the others are cool too.

  2. Good to see such nice tote bags with beautiful customization. Tote bags are a symbol of stylish gesture and smart personality. Popularity of tote bag is increasing day by day. As it is a nice product, some customization can take the style/smartness to a new level. Wanna know more.
