Ruffled Market Tote
With "Earth Day" this month, this new bag is the perfect addition to the Loribelle Bags collection. Generously sized at 15" tall, 14" wide and 5" "deep" this bag can be used as a Market tote instead of the flimsy plastic bags. With this space and several slip pockets inside (FIVE!!!) it would make a perfect tote for just about any occasion. The front features a buttoned pocket sized just right for a cell phone or small billfold. I've attached elastic to the ties, so even with the bag cinched closed you can open it enough to insert items. You can also untie it and open it fully for easier access.
I've machine quilted this bag, which gives a nice layer of batting, or insulation. This should help keep cold foods cold longer than the little reusable bags or plastic bags. It also makes for a nice cozy tote to carry! While this bag wasn't originally designed to be reversible, if you want the pockets on the outside, there are no visible seams, so this can easily be turned inside out and used with the pink side out.
This bag is for sale for $35 and will be on Etsy in the next day or so. If you'd like to buy it before I list it on Etsy, please let me know. This same bag can be ordered as a custom bag in the colors of your choice for the same price.
PS, this bag doesn't have a person's name yet. I'll name it after the person who buys it.
