red flowers and brown corduroy market bag

This is a cotton shopping bag.

 

It is reversible with one side red flowers that have a metallic bit and the other is brown corduroy.

The bag dimensions are 17 inches tall, 16 inches wide, and 4 inches deep.

The pocket is 8 inches wide by 7 inches high.  There are pockets on the "inside" and the "outside" of the bag.

The strap is 2 inches wide by about 34 inches long.  It has both fabrics on it.

The bottom is a flat bottom which makes it more easily packed with groceries.

I have been making these bags and using them for years.  The dimensions are based off a paper grocery bag.  The only time I have had a bag fall apart was after it had been played with by a dog.  Then it held up until it was carrying a crazy amount of library books.  It still worked after I tied a square knot in the strap and sewed together.  I was traveling so it was a repair that had to happen.

The bag is $25 plus $7 shipping.
