Last of the Jane Market Totes

I am not sure I will make these bags again. I might, but I have made enough to last me a lifetime. I have taken making more than one from the same pattern to new heights of crazy.

The funny thing about making the same pattern over and over is that I get used to making it. For this version, I cut the pieces out at the last BAMQG meeting. Cutting is a good thing for me to do at the meetings.

On Sunday I spent the day finishing up some smaller projects. I didn’t want to start another project just yet and I had some blocks to make and bags to finish.

This bag was one of them. I bought the fabric to make a bag, but I think I bought it to make the Eco Market tote. Somehow I never got around to it, but I thought it would be good Jane Market tote. I think it turned out well.

One of the annoying things about the pattern is that I always forget to cut some part of this pattern out. This time it was the lining. This is such a pain and totally my fault.

These are all the totes that I have made this year. Lots of nice fabric, don’t you think?

Actually, I might make one more. I have a lot of miscellaneous parts from various bags that didn’t work out for some reason and I might just put them all together in a mish mash kind of bag. We’ll see.

One thought on “Last of the Jane Market Totes”

  1. I made so many of these a couple of years ago that I had to take a complete break from them for awhile. I do love them because they are a nice simple way to show off a print that would get lost if cut up into little pieces. I’ve been making them as the “gift wrap” for the flannel receiving blankets I make for the (many) expectant mothers at my office. The moms seem to like them because they are a good size for hauling kid stuff around once you get past the diaper bag stage.
