I'm so glad this challenge came up because it gave me a reason to get done with my market bag.
The bag is made from men's jeans and lined with a old bed sheet. I used the back pocket from the jeans and added it to the front of the bag for cell, keys, wallet,......
The pocket roses(My favorite part) are made from the hem of the jeans. I bleached them and then painted and sealed them. The leaves are from salvage from the jeans too. I didn't bleach them I just painted them.
I love buying the fresh produce at the market here, during the summer of course, and I can't wait to use the bag then.
Close up os the pocket:

Thanks! I made the bag over the shoulder so it is easier for me to carry for a long time at the market
