Flea Market Bag
Flea Market Bag

This is the finished Flea Market Bag by Grand Revival Designs. It is made with Innocent Crush by Anna Maria Horner in the grape colorway.

I have mixed feelings about this bag. The straps weren’t the same length when I went to topstitch them together at the end of the process. The bag was easy to put together and especially to turn, but the straps ended up a different length (probably my fault when I traced the pattern), so I had trouble sewing the straps together.

Also, the maker has to press all the edges of the strap under before topstitching, which was a pain, but turned out ok in the end.

The bag is a little small for a tote. It is more handbag sized, but may fit an iPad or Kindle or something. I don’t know yet if I’ll keep it or give it as a gift.
