In Bloom market bag


Done in all Lion brand cottons and using one of the patterns in this leaflet...



All the patterns in this booklet are equally nice, and easy to follow.

I originally only meant to use this for running up to the grocery.. but find the colors make me feel happy..and have been using it for everyday pocketbook duties.
I did slightly widen the shoulder strap to increase weight carried comfort.. and also lengthened the strap to fit messenger bag style. Makes it a darn handy bag.

Yes.. that's a Ripple Blankie in there on an outing. ;)

It's me again! Why don't you post that on the Granny along? I'm sure everyone would love to see it!
I think I remember having seen your work on there (or the ripple along?) before, but if not, the URL is

and if you aren't able to post, you will have to send an e-mail requesting access. Hope to see you there!

I love this pattern. Is it posted anywhere? The book seems to be out of print. Your color scheme is awesome!!! Very creative and eye catching.
