The Market Tote is by far my most popular item!
In the beginning I used Kelly McCants' Market Tote pattern which is fabulous, versatile and great for shopping, traveling, workout classes, anything. It is truly a stuff-it-all tote with side & center pockets and a deep opening.
Then I took the pattern up a notch by adding a zippered portion. The zipper section can set inside the bag giving it an angular look, or pulled up and zipped closed for added space.
