New shopping bags!


It has come to attention that I have forgotten all about my Oilcloth Totes. The Market Tote line needs to be photographed again, I only half decent images of the Roses Oilcloth so that is the only one listed. I know I should have made up a new batch first and gotten them back up on the site. But you know me I like the thrill of a new product to get me going. First I had to create something new I am calling it the "Shopper".

The Shopper is inspired by the cheapie cloth bag that our local grocery store carries. I hated their fabric that those are made out of and I really don't want their name plastered all over life. I think this might have been Maddies idea to make these up or was it my friend Angie, I can't remember now. It was probably both of them.

So here they are "The Modern June Shopper Bag". I will list them soon. I love them all in a row, I can't wait to go shopping with them. This first batch is to be part gift and partly for me. I always use my items so I can tweak anything that doesn't work. I hope you all like them as much as I do!

Kelly,

Used the gorgous black & white print (don't know the name of the pattern) for a pick-up trip to Ukrops. It held a carton of Edy's, two frozen orange juice, two cartons of grape tomatoes, one carton of blueberries, 2 oranges, 4 tangerines, l lemon, 6 bananas and loaf of french bread. Oh and a 4pk of bagles. Who knew so much would fit! And the handles didn't fall off like would happen with all of that in our lovely supermarket's paper bags. Can't wait to use it this summer for the pool and my Thurs. trips to the farmer's market.

Thanks again for the gift.

J. you have the black paradise lace! Wow you got tons in to it! Yeah I am so glad you used it.

Oh for the love of the Thursday farmers market. It's not to far of is it?

You always wanted the deeper version of the market tote. I finally made them for you. Now that I realize it you were the first to recommend it. Oh how the brain fails me!

Merry Christmas! love, kelly

Hi all, I am so glad you like the new bags! I am leaving them unlined so they can be cheaper do you think that is ok of do you think people would want them more finished? I want them to cute but functional and affordable.

Amy said...

These are really too cute! nicely done!

said...

I love them! they are perfect!

Thanks sis! and I love the blog... try and come here to visit every couple of days or so. One thing if you line the inside of the bag is that it will not be as easy to clean off with fabric in it. Never know when the carton of eggs might decide to explode.

PS the jacket is in the mail this afternoon when I get home :)

I like it just the way it is. If customers want it more finished they can always order your other tote. The size and price is great.

Oh those are great... definitely better than my Ukrops one!
Followed a link from the Apronista's blog (I think... LOL)... I was amazed at how small the world suddenly seemed :)
