Betcha Can't Make Just One.....


Well - I can't anyway! I made another with the Bernat cotton - this one shorter and fatter (like me!) The Yellow on is based on the Bernat Handicrafter Cotton Market Bag with a few extra rows at the bottom and top, is made with some cotton yarn I had in my stash, I think it's CottonEase, and the pink is from some Sugar & Cream stripes.
This one was also made with Sugar n' Cream -a little bit bigger, It took just a little more than one ball of each color. I have it filled with yarn here - and could stuff it even more if I tried.
Next I'm going to try the June - Go Green Market Bag from Suzies Stuff.
She uses a CD in the bottom of the bag to make it sturdier.
What am I going to do with all of these market bags???? I promised I would do a table for the church craft fair coming up in two weeks. I thought these might sell well since they can be used for beach bags as well as market bags. And, if the Sox keep playing as badly as they have been, I'll probably have a dozen of them made by then.

See that's why I am afraid to try them, lol... I have a habit of sticking with one thing for awhile and I have other things pending. I can see it now all my swap partners would get market bags instead of dishcloths, LOL

These are terrific bags!!! And a free pattern to boot - can't beat that one. Thanks for the 'green' idea. :)
