Jane Market Bag

I made another Jane Market bag this week. This one is going to Sewing Summit with me... for the shop hop, for carrying FQ Swap and Color Wheel Swap packages, and any other goodies I might need.

Jane Market Bag

I made a few modification this time (thanks to suggestions from some seasoned Jane Market bag makers)... adding fusible fleece to the bag and interfacing to the handles.

Despite working with fusible fleece 1,000 times before, I struggled with it this time (might have had something to do with a sick little one getting me up at 3am, 3:30am, 4:15am, and finally for good at 5am!) I'll try another one with the fusible fleece, but I think next time I'll cut the fleece a little bigger than the fabric and trim down once fused (some how I just couldn't get it cut right!) and I'll use a little bigger seam allowance (1/4" was hard to maintain in the thicker seams.)

I think my next one will be a library book bag for Megan from Poky Little Puppy/Golden Books fabrics.

Cute! It's such a fun pattern, and I just love the aqua Farmdale print!

Love your fabrics! I can't wait to see it in person.

Love the tree blossoms. I couldn't figure out if they were cherry blossoms or dogwood blossoms. They look cute with the pink polka dots.
