I made this bag for Joan my friend whose birthday was on 12th Aug. She asked for a shopping bag (market tote). I made it a bit fancier because it was her birthday present, with some wine, home made Whiskey Marmalade and Plum Jam. She was pleased. The bear is Bernard, my DGS's best friend left me in charge of his care while he stays with his Mum for a week. Such responsibility and honour!
