New Market Tote

About a month ago or maybe a little less, I sewed myself a market tote using some of my painted fabrics. Recently I decided I needed to screen print some girl figures onto each side.

Now it's ready for shopping! The screen printed girl figures didn't turn out perfect since I screened them after the tote was constructed. Oh well...I like it just as it is. Unperfect. Or is that Imperfect. Or perhaps it's just Unique! Yes, Unique. I like that better.

Oh by the way, did you know I sell a market tote pattern? I do! You will find it in my Etsy shop under the pattern category. It is a downloadable PDF pattern, so you can have it in an instant! I used the construction methods from the pattern to make the tote above. It's a fairly simple and quick project.

It is my understanding that in the state of California you cannot carry out your purchases in a plastic bag anymore. They've been banned. Are there other states doing this? Anyone know?
