I love these twin bags! (They’re not identical, so I guess we’ll have to call them fraternal twin bags.) I’ve made these market bags in the past, using Martha Stewart dishtowels. That set gets used daily and I really think the design we came up with is great. The size is super for groceries, and they’ve really held up well.
I decided to make some new ones out of this lovely gray and mustard colored Amy Butler fabric. If you’ll recall, I made a skirt using this same fabric combo, so I guess I’ll have to remember not to use this bag while wearing that skirt!
Both bags are reversible and both have some light interfacing on the bottom panels for some additional support and stability. If you didn’t want to use them for groceries, they’d also be great as book bags, beach bags, or just simple totes… so versatile!
I think they should remain as a set, but my sister seems to already have her eye on the dark gray version… we’ll see…
