A Better Market Bag

This turned out well for me,
but not so well as a potential pattern.

I gave it a large, solid bottom in teal yarn

that took a bit long to finish.

Then I added some in-the-round mesh sides,
using silver twine for the forward pass
and teal twine for the return pass.

Next I broke the sides into two (2) flat tapering sides
that terminated in solid fabric straps
all in silver twine.

Here’s the bag from the top and loaded

As you can see, I put a couple of buttons on the strap
so that I could load an open bag
then fasten the straps together to carry it around.

And this is it, hanging on a chair

It seems like it will be useful,
but I have not tried it yet.

I’m still mulling it over, where to go from here.
