I can see the possibilities with this Sunny Days Market Bag right away! I might have to change up some dimensions but can't you just see it as a wine gift tote, a beach tote, a market tote, a bath toys tote, a picnic tote. So many ideas here! The uses and colors you can use are amazing! I love that it's another pattern designated "easy". Score!!!

Bernat cotton yarns are a fun yarn to work with. They have such a great variety of colors. This lemon color is so sunny and bright. It could be used as a market bag or you could use it as a beach tote also. I never seem to have enough totes. I plan on making one of these for myself and maybe a few extras as gifts.

I love this site but I have a very hard time trying to print the directions out. Any suggestion?

I copy the entire and all....and do a paste into my Microsoft Word program. Then I save it or print it out.....and the best part....I can make the font larger! Cathy

I print to PDF using CutePDF Writer. There are other programs that let you do this to. That way you save paper and having to keep track of it until you need it.

I don't print things on paper right away -- I print to PDF. Then you don't have to worry about keeping track of a paper copy until you're ready to use it. There are several programs that let you do this, the one I use is CutePDF Writer or Foxit Reader.

You can either print/copy to a PDF file or if you want a hard copy, I have always had success using https// hope this link helps you, PRINTFRIENDLY has always worked for me when I needed to print a copy of something but the site doesn't have any options for print outs. Hope it works for you..

The print friendly and pdf extension added to your chrome browser lets you print any page as a pdf.

I made two of these so far - works up easy and I love them!
