More Market Bags

I've finally gotten on a roll and have been sewing up a storm this past week. It's been exciting to see everything come together and I'm starting to feel a little less nervous about the whole thing. Of course I did put all of my items in a pile tonight and felt a tad underwhelmed by it's height. I think it would've helped if all the items I'm sewing weren't flat. I'm sure once I get there and have it spread out and displayed it will look a lot fuller. That's what I keep telling myself anyway.

I had some leftover burlap from the coffee bags I've been making and I made this little burlap purse using one of Jessica's fabrics from How About Orange for the lining. I love that fabric! So bright and cheerful.
I also am hoping this market bag doesn't sell because I love the coffee bean on the front! I'm looking forward to sewing for myself after this is all over!

I love them both but the coffee bag one is just right! Not to hot, not to cold, just perfect.

cute bags Leslie! I can see why you'd hope that one doesn't sell! That bean is perfect! I've been sewing up some of my coffee bags as well, I really love working with that stuff! It gives such a nice touch and texture to bags.

I have a feeling that bag is going to be sold before you even sit down. It's awesome!
