Detach the little bag for power shopping.
This bag is made from the same vintage grain sack plus upholstery fabric. 
Cool graphics!

A year or so ago I made a "flea bag" for my friend Frannie Pfarkel for her birthday.  (See the tag?)  It's a combination of a vintage grain sack and coordinating fabrics.  The large bag is perfect for shopping at a flea market.  Your small purchases will fit inside or in the outside pockets.  And the little bag can be unclipped from the bigger flea bag and clipped to a belt loop for what I call power shopping - both hands are free.  It holds your cell, shades and cash.  Perfect for garages sales when you are in and out of the car frquently.  Add your ID and a credit/debit card and it's great for Christmas shopping at the mall, too.  (Do any of us shop at malls anymore?)


I made the second flea bag recently using the remainder of the grain sack and two other fabrics.
