I will not attempt to take any credit for this cool idea. I WILL take the credit for the funky cool fabric choices.
Thank you very much.
I was surfing the web for tote bag patterns and came across a pattern for a ‘strawberry farmers market bag.’ There are many patterns available online but the gist of all of them is the same.
I will not try to list the exact steps since I’m sure my explanation will be far less susinct than what is already out there.
I decided that since we had the strawberry stand next to us last week (the smell was incredible!) these might be a nice addition to our offerings at the Wicked Rural booth.
I started with some great batik fabric that I hoarded this winter and the results where… Well, judge for yourself-
I added some stitching along the top edge and double sewed all the side seams I think they came out well! I will add some other colors for the Tue market and they will be available for $17 ea.
They are really cool if I do say so myself! The finished berry is only about 3×4″ and I made sure they elastic gives you a nice loop to carry it, when its in berry form.
They are 100% cotton and while a lot of the online patterns use gingham fabric I opted for thicker options.
Hope to see you Tuesday!
Beware, the sewing machine is back out, the dogs are seeking cover. There is much more silliness where these came from.
