... my second jane market bag

jane market bag

see, i couldn't resist, could i? i just had to make another jane market bag. and the thing is, i like this one even more than my first.

i used a slightly stiffer group of fabrics for the body than i did before (some kokka and lecien linens, and seriously, how cute is that fairy tale print?), which gave it more structure. and as i was sewing, i realized that i skipped a step on my first bag (didn't top-stitch the side panels to the front pocket), so that also helped with the structure factor, too.

and i am totally smitten with the green & blue striped handles (from the red letter day line, which i love love love right now).

i am so excited to head off to the store now with my two jane market bags.

  1. I love your use of fabrics on that bag. Turned out really cute! Makes me want to rush to the sewing room and throw another one of these bags together.
