9 chevron market tote.

10.03.2011

I put together a new market tote for Sewing Summit this weekend!  I modified the pattern to add a pocket to the front and back sides, inspired by the Jane Market Bag.
The chevron fabric is a Premier Prints home decor print, and I bought it to make curtains for our living room.   Buying the whole bolt was not much more expensive than just buying the yardage that I needed for the curtains, so I have some extra fabric to use up!  
The top of the pocket is made from Lizzy House's Pearl Bracelet in Purple from the 1001 Peeps collection. The bottom is some gray corduroy I've had forever.
The lining is a weird purple-ish denim that I bought in the clearance section at JoAnn's a couple years ago.  It's perfect for a rugged market tote!
Three more days until I arrive in SLC!  The sewing scramble continues until then.
