    Here are the market bags I made for one of my son's teachers... I made her two and put a $10 grocery store gift card in one of the pockets :)

    I just looove this fabric!
    I got it at Sir's in Fayetteville, TN (which is not one of my favorite fabric stores since they mostly have seconds and flat folds) but I did fall in love with this black paisley material.
    I made myself a few as well but ran out of the material I was using for the sides & straps :( I don't see myself getting out there any time in the near future so I'll probably just pick up some twill at Wallyworld...

    Here's a link to the market bag pattern...

    Your son's teacher is going to love the gift you made for her. My sister was a teacher and received more coffee cups than you can imagine. She would have loved receiving a market bag. :thumbup:

    Those are really pretty. It's really nice to reward those who have made a difference in our children's lives.

    Lucky Teacher - what a great teacher gift idea! I'm beyond the teacher gift point, but it's a great gift for anyone.

    And, your lovely market bag reminds me of all the coffee cups I received as gifts when I was teaching......

    The bag is so pretty and will be much appreciated (and best of all USED!) :lol:

    I use this market bag a lot - at least I've started to. Two of my friends made them for themselves and have been using them for months and I made some a bit ago with guitar playing buddha fabric and now they are in my craft room with the material & projects I take to sewing groups... they hold a ton!

    The pattern is easy. I cut out a bunch and work on the whole lot, sweatshop style lol. I used two different side/handle fabrics. I love my guitar buddha bags!

    That is such a nice thing for you to do. The general public does not realize how much of the teachers' own $$$$$$$$$$ are put back into their classrooms.
    Your work is very nice. I like the pattern and the fabric you chose.
    Have a great day/Dorothy
