I'm celebrating with my new Market Bag.....Happy Thanksgiving!!

I finished this market bag last night while watching the finale of Dancing With The Stars. Can I just add that my FAVORITE star won!! Yes, yes, yes. Donnie Osmond himself took the Mirror ball trophy!!!

The pattern called for a short ruffle at the top of bag where the straps attached which I left off. Next time I might also use elastic in the casing where the side ties are and leave those off too. I might be fun to switch it up a bit. What do you think?

This is the side view - there is a little pocket on the front and the back at the bottom of the brown sections. (The front and back look the same).

I added some extra pockets inside too. The pattern only called for one 5" pocket inside....that would never do!!

LOVE those pockets!!

Sorry that I can't share a tutuorial because I used this pattern & kit by Late Bloomer Quilts which you can find on line.

See you on Friday for the Friday Finishes (see button on the left) and for my "Keeping it Real" post. I have some GREAT pictures to share.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday with your families!!


  1. that bag is really cute and looooks like it would be sooo hard to make!! I love it!!!
    Can't wait to se what you post for Friday Finishes.

  2. Oh my gosh that looks sooooo gorgeous and practical to boot! :D I was eyeing a bag very similar to this with that fabric. They were selling it at an apple orchard this past fall. (Is it still Fall?!) Anyway, yours is wayyyyy cuter Kate! Can I see it in person tomorrow?!? ;) Can't wait to see you guys!

  3. Wishing you and yours the most blessed of days as we break bread with friends and family or spend our time as a volunteer with any one of the numerous charities in need of our time and talents.

    Peace, plenty, prosperity - my wish for the United States of America.

  4. A great bag! I hope you had a good Thanksgiving.
