Crafty Chica

We just love this Mercado Bag made of oilcloth! You can find instructions on how to sew your own tote bag in Kathy Cano-Murillo's new book titled Crafty Chica's Guide to Artful Sewing available for pre-order at Random House. This tote bag is great for a variety of different activities. "The idea is to create a mosaic/pathwork type of bag that shows off all the happy colors of the oilcloth!" Cano-Murillo's book offers lots of "fabu-low-sew projects for the everyday crafter."
