They're so SO handy. I've made them to carry library books, knitting/crochet supplies, laundry, ballet shoes, etc. A few years ago, I even made them into scripture bags for Aryn's friends. I'm telling you this bag is VER.SA.TILE.
Anyway, I needed a new bag and figured this would be a great GIVEAWAY. I went to the DVR and guess what? Gene had erased THE episode with the instructions! Since I've made so many bags, I can make them on my own, but I wanted to share the instructions with all of you...Would any of you be interested in a HOW TO?
So. Without further ado... I present the MARKET BAG. I wish I could say it in French. I think it would sound fancier. But alas, No, and Gene's not here to translate... Speaking of french, I did construct it using french seams. Does that count?
This is one side of the bag. The fabric is Country Life from Waverly.
I had to just sneak in a picture of one of the squashes. (Can you see it below the bags?) I came home and found a few of them, and pumpkins too. It was almost like they just appeared. Crazy, I tell you.

p.s. On Sunday while, perusing the internet, I found this blog. It's near Chateau Beynac, along the Dordogne River, a place Gene and I visited 11 years ago. It brought back some great memories. It also reminded me about another secret dream I have... I guess I'll just get to live this one vicariously.

and the winner is...(drum roll)... THE GUBLER FAM. Congratulations! I'll bring it over soon.
