Another Belated Birthday Present

In May, when we went to South Carolina my brother in law, Fran, and sister in law, Pam took us to a huge flea market. The market is open on Wednesdays and covers acres of land. There were hundreds of vendors selling unique items, antiques, plants, books, etc. Pam goes to the flea market regularly so I decided to make her a tote bag for her birthday to take to the market. Of course I'm late again, her birthday was a few weeks ago.

I used Mary Engelbreit fabric to make the bag.

The bag has outside compartments with Velcro.

The inside of the tote was lined in red fabric with pockets make out of 3 different cherry fabrics.

Pam should have room to bring home quite a few treasures.
