I called this a skirt bag because the top band reminded me of how my Momma taught us to sew waistbands for skirts. You made a little gap below the band which allowed the skirt to open up wider to slide over the hip area. Nifty huh? Anyhow, I found it's handy for a bag that can go from empty to overflowing in a very short time at the flea market!The buttons along the top are pretty but they serve a purpose too. I can adjust the way the bag closes by moving the buttonhole over to the next button. Voila! I also tried out a new idea for the handles using a 3" wide black cotton webbing strap. It sure feels sturdy like I could probably haul 2 watermelons if I wanted to! I will probably make another one to sell in craft fairs or our Etsy shop, Down South Designs. Check it out!
