I made this large market bag last year at the end of the summer and did not get a chance to use it. The fabric is quilted and really soft. The straps are red and gold check. I would really love to use it at the Brimfeild Fair in May. It could hold all my great finds. Maybe I could use it as an overnight bag for a trip to Martha's Vineyard. Most likely it will be carried to the beach where I could read a book about great finds on Martha's Vineyard.
