Be Green Market Bag

  • The Be Green Market Bag is perfect for toting groceries from your favorite farmer’s market or the grocery, especially with the handy shoulder strap. This is the perfect gift to make for your family and friends for the holidays and special occasions. The Market Bag can be customized for any friend, a child, or for grandma. The Market Bag does not require a lot of material or time, and it is simple to make with this easy pattern! Everyone can use an extra Market Bag anytime!

    Sell finished items! You (the purchaser of this pattern) can sell finished Be Green Market Bags  made using this pattern (on a home-based scale), credit/tag especially on social media to Cheryl Kuczek, @cherylofparadiso, and #begreenmarket, @paradisosewingpatterns is appreciated! Thank-you!

    For best results, use a 110 Jean needle to sew through the canvas. Other canvas weights can be used, but for best results the 10 oz is recommended. 2 fabrics can be used instead of 3 to embellish the bag. Variegated threads really show up against the canvas, and look very cool! They are my favorite to use!
