Springtime. Farmer's markets. I'm in. With a few simple folds and some quick stitching, I've got the sweetest bag to hold freshly cut ruby red rhubarb and asparagus, deeply hued leafy greens, a dozen farm fresh eggs (to fill in until my hens begin laying), a loaf of homemade sprouted grain bread, a jar of raw buckwheat honey, and a bouquet of wild flowers for my table.
Here's where I snagged the brilliant tutorial: http://lolanovablog.blogspot.com/2013/06/origami-market-bag-tutorial.html Today, Jo-Ann's offered a senior citizens (60+) discount of 20% off your total purchase. I cringed to think that I am now considered a senior citizen, but I'm good with the saving money part. For this project, I chose linen from the home decor section. The weight is suitable, the earthiness of natural fiber appropriate, and it was discounted 40%. A total savings of 60%. 1 easy-to-follow tutorial + 1 yard 54" wide fabric = 2 multipurpose bags.
