Market Shopper ~ Sweet Rustique

I have had so much fun making this new Market Shopper.

It is a bag that measures 13″ x 27″. 

It’s nice and deep…perfect for that special sale or farmer’s market.

I have been collecting vintage barkcloth {old drapery} for years and it teams perfectly with the rustic burlap.

I always prefer to hi-light any special characteristics…{i.e. time-worn holes, care instructions, etc…}

This one is just too much fun!

I took a part an old oil painting and hand-sewed it to the front of one of the bags.

Oh, My!

This was a pretty perfect way to spend my Mother’s Day…

  2. Those bags are cute, but they sure pale in comparison to that sweet little babe in the last photo. Congratulations on your new grandson. He is so handsome.

    I can’t wait to see my first grandbaby…7 more weeks! Your photo makes me more anxious to hold him/her.
