This Little Piggy Went to Market

As far as handmade products are concerned, it's always about the details. Almost anyone can slap a couple of pieces of fabric together and stitch it with a needle and thread and call it handmade and original, but not everyone can construct a handbag pattern that will become an original and stylishly designed item.

Highlighted here is an indie designer, Moop, featured on Etsy. Moop's market bag has a beautiful styling with well stitched seems and pleats across the face. It's made of a midweight brushed canvas in sage green and lined with a lighter sage green cotton fabric. The inside has 6 pockets and 2 D-rings for clipping keys, pouches and other small items. It is spacious and strong enough for a laptop, groceries and books. Great for the budgeting college student as well as the ever ready working woman.

Approximate dimensions:12" across the top, 13" deep, 16" across the bottom. When holding the strap in the middle, the bag hangs about 14" down.

Price is $74.00 and unfortunately only 1 left in stock, so hurry!
