A while ago, I posted a survey asking about your favorite market bag pattern from those shown below. Well, after 266 responses, I think I have a pretty good sampling.
The answer….. drum roll, please
It’s a Tie!

Be Green Market Bag: Paradiso Designs 8%
Market Tote: Sweetwater 8%
Note: 53% of respondents said they had made a market bag or tote for shopping, which I thought was pretty good.
As you can see, we now stock patterns for the top 6 vote-getters. So, the other 47% of you have no excuse not to make a stylish market bag.
Next, the work begins. As promised, I’ll use the winning pattern, twill and coated/laminated fabric from the “Freebird” collection, to make a bag with the winning pattern. And, since it’s a tie, I guess I get to pick from the top two patterns… I choose Mary Ann’s Market Tote. I really like the gathered front pocket, great for my wallet, keys or phone.
