Brielle Market Bag | Thread Filled Thursdays

Brielle Market Bag | Thread Filled Thursdays

I’m a lover of large bags, and Farmer’s Market visits, and when they combine, it’s like I’ve stepped into Wonka’s Chocolate Factory and been told to do what I want. The Brielle Market Bag by I Think Sew, begs for the use of a large print outer fabric to show off colors, or geometric shapes. I know that large bag lovers draw a very hard line about whether they want print or solids, but none that I know ever want boring tiny prints. Ever. 

The main goal for this bag was to have it used as a shopping bag for groceries or your jaunts to outdoor or indoor markets throughout the season. One of the things that I hate the most about reusable bags from stores are the fact that you can’t wash them. So in the case of spills, or even worse, meat leaking, you have to throw the entire thing away, thus making it NOT reusable.

Just six pieces of fabric to sew up, and this beauty only takes me about an hour start to finish. I don’t include taping and cutting the pattern out anymore, because some folks are faster than others. This is a HUGE bag too. Two feet wide, and a foot and a half tall without the handles. PLENTY of room for all of those goodies that you are certain to pick up on a day out shopping. 

It calls for quilting cotton, but you know me, I love changing things up. I used home decor for the outer fabric, this one being an OOP Jessica Jones Outside Oslo print, with quilting cotton for the lining. And guess what? NO INTERFACING! If you’re worried about the integrity of the bag you can double stitch all seams, or serge them.

Granted, you don’t have to use it JUST for groceries, but there’s something about loading up all of your food items into a bag of pretty and walking out. So many compliments, and questions like “where can I buy something like that?” abound. Sewing simple things these days seem to be getting me through rough patches of thought and introspection. I’m just a regular thinker and sewist around these parts. 

The good news is. I’m making these for sale. They will be priced at $45 plus shipping, and you can purchase after I make. I’m trying not to do custom orders on these because it takes too much time to wait for fabric if I don’t have what you want in stock. In a couple of days, I’ll be opening a shop page on the blog and you can order and pay straight from there! Yippee! 

Until then, happy sewing!

I love these type of big bags for my grandmother. I use them when I have a bunch of stuff to pack and carry.

I kinda wish I never stopped sewing, especially since I find myself hand stitching holes in my son's clothes a lot more often than I want to. I would SOOO rock one of these bags as my everyday bag or beach tote. These are fab!

This is such a cute bag. I love how big it is. It's awesome that you're going to be making them.

That MArket bag is gorgeous. I prefer to always bring my own reusable bags to the stores because it looks prettier and is more comfy
