Flea Market Bag ~

Have you seen this pattern? It is by Grand Revival and has been out for some time now. I whipped me up one of these bags and love the fabric I used and how it turned out. I thought I was making the longer handled bag, but when I got it done it ended up being the shorter style...oh well...I still love it! I used a coordinating fabric for the inside and it is an *easy as pie* pattern. I left mine open for now, but you can also add a tab out of fabric and velcro and I intend to do that at some point. Pictures didn't load in the order I wanted them to, but I hear that other people have that problem every now and then too, but you get the idea. Love this tote and had fun making it.
I think there is *something in the air* because I have really been digging out, sorting, cleaning etc. today. I do intend to have a huge garage sale in May so that is part of what is spuring me on, but I tend to get this way at this time of year. Out with the old and in with the *VINTAGE*...or out with the old and have a clean house! LOL Have a wonderful day! Blessings ~
