DIY market bag from Alabama Chanin
Need a craft project for October? How about this handsome DIY market bag from designer activist Natalie Chanin of Alabama Chanin? It’s all organic cotton, worked in Chanin’s signature reverse appliqué and available in gray and black or white and navy. The kit includes all the supplies to complete the Market Bag from her book “Alabama Studio Style: More Projects, Recipes and Stories Celebrating Sustainable Fashion and Living” (STC Craft/A Melanie Falick Book, 2010, $35). If you already have the book, instructions are on Page 107. If not, you can add the book to your order for $27.50 and find therein plenty more inspiring sewing projects — and recipes too.
