Market Totes

***Please Note - a sewing machine is required for this project***

These practical and pretty tote bags make great gifts, would be lovely for a Mother's Day gift, and are perfect for craft fairs!  They fold up like a book and snap closed so they are perfect to carry around in your purse so you always have a bag available when you are out shopping.  

There are three different designs in the set (Fresh Honey; Olive Oil; and Market Fresh with the carrot and artichoke) and each one stitches up in a single 5x7 hooping with around 10,000 stitches and between 8 and 10 color stops.  Once the cover is finished stitching, it is sewn onto the front of a tote bag, before the bag is assembled.  Detailed instructions are included for sewing the tote bag - it is a very easy style with french seams down the sides so no raw edges anywhere in the bag.

When the tote is in use, the front embroidery panel can also be an optional pocket.  

The finished tote bag measures 12" wide by 12.5" tall and when it's folded it measures 4.5" tall, 3" wide and 1" deep.

Please note an embroidery machine and a sewing machine are both required to complete this project. Some of these designs use purchased licensed clipart.
