It’s Friday my lovelies! You know what that means! My Hidden Hill Market Tote is live! This bag is totally different than the other bags I have designed. It’s got more construction but a simple stitch pattern...you will be whipping up so many! I have been on a total market bag frenzy as of late...if I could only remember to put them in my Jeep for when I am out shopping....that would be GREAT! Do they still allow plastic bags where you live? They are slowly outlawing them in towns around me so that is probably the cause of my obsession. Anywho, I hope you love this pattern as much as I do. It is a great market bag, beach bag, WIP bag...it’s really an all around great tote. Make sure to tag me in all your makes! I can’t wait to see them!
