I found some fun fabric at Joan's a couple of weeks ago: apples and oranges. The minute I saw them I knew just that I wanted to make a tote to go to the farmer's market that is held 2 blocks from our house on Sundays from May to October. I needed something sturdy to resist the weight but instead of canvas, used more denim reclaimed from Old jeans.
It's roomy but low profile with a wide base to tuck in the groceries without piling them too much. I added a big pocket in the front for my cell phone and sunglasses,
a strap for closure with a really big button, a padded strap for comfort.
Inside I added a pocket with a snap to tuck in my wallet.
I'm out of Jeans for now but no matter: more upcycling to come
