Market Bag Pattern Available Now!

At last after days of distraction and just plain laziness I have finished the pattern, worked out all the kinks (knock on wood) and now have a shiny new listing on at my etsy shop for these gorgeous and super fun bags.
This picture just makes me laugh, we have almost no food in the house right now, and our local market was closed so in order to illustrate it's holding capacity i used open cereal boxes and spotty bananas....needless to say I did not use this photo on my etsy listing :)

My newest goodies

Okay so I didn't post yesterday, in my defense it was too hot to do much of anything by the time I could get to my computer. Now without further ado...
First we have my giraffe tassle/tieback. I was thinking about baby stuff since I'm going to be an aunty in december. This is the first thing I made, and now it holds my curtains open cause its stinkin cute!

Then I made a purse, mostly at my daughter's insistence...Which come to think of it, is probably why it turned out so small. Still it's very cute and will hold the essentials, phone, id, keys, money. (by the way that's my 5 year old demonstrating the size)
And then because my son fell asleep on me and I couldn't get to any other yarn, I made this cute little guy. I Call him a truffle bunny, and I'm going to make a bunch more (someday) This one is a Strawberry Truffle.
So That's what I've been doing with myself lately, right now I'm working on two different market bags. I'll post when they more resemble bags than piles of yarn :)
