Market Bags

I have been sewing like crazy every spare minute this week - and three jobs,  two kids and everything else there are not that many minutes to.spare!
I have sewed up 12 bags for the Twilight Market tomorrow, just putting the finishing touches on now ie.trimming loose threads and sewing on the button. Even choosing the buttons took time!
The bags are made from denim and are decorated with vintage doilies from my op shop collection. Some bags feature hand dyed doilies. 
No two bags are the same!
All bags are fully lined, have an internal pocket ( some with a zip), a clip to hang keys on, and a button/ loop closure. Or at least they will when I finish sewing them on...


  1. These look great! Good luck tomorrow night. Where is the market?

  2. Love the feature of the doilies - it's a great touch and makes the bags unique (as you say). Good luck with the market!

  3. Thanks! I have been collecting doilies for a couple of years with the plan for making bags like this - just took me a while to get around to it!
    Market is at Brunswick Secondary, Dawson St Bruns. - address & time on the flyer in my last post. Buttons are all done now, just have to get sorted & packed ready to go!
