"Washington" Bags

I made these sets of grocery and produce bags for my office fund-raising auction. One grocery or tote bag and three produce bags. The grocery bag outer fabric is "Washington" by In The Beginning exclusively for Pacific Fabrics & Crafts stores. The produce bags are made of Bubble Organza from JoAnn's, and the fruits and vegetables fabric is Farmer's Market. I used pink and black polka dots and green and white polka dots for the lining. I added a pretty bow on each tote bag. The fabric is fabulous! There are soooo many "Washington" things to look at! From Seattle's unique Pike Place Market, to Mt. Saint Helen's (anniversary of the big blow is tomorrow!), along with crabs, fishing boats, Orcas, tulips, ferry boats, wheat, sea planes, Snoqualmie Falls, otters - so many "Washington" products and landmarks...oh and don't forget COFFEE! I bought 5 yards of this fabric and I might just have to go back for more :-)
