Oui Oui Market Bag and Versatile Envelope Pouch - Couturiere Parisienne for Riley Blake Designs

Bonjour! Have you ever been to Paris or dreamed of it? Well this versatile Market bag will make you want to go or just dream of it hehe. I went to Paris twice (college and Honeymoon) and it's dreamy. Beautiful buildings, museums, and the most important - PATISSERIE. Couturiere Parisienne by J.Wecker Frisch for Riley Blake Designs is the perfect ode to Paris. I made a Market Bag using this beautiful line that you'll want to fill with French Bread, soap, lavender bundles, or just groceries haha!

The best thing about this bag is tada - it's reversible and with large pockets!!! I lined it with black canvas inside and quilted the outside with the tiniest quilt lines my eyes could handle. I think it made the bag modern and sturdy, hopefully to last a lifetime! Leather handles finish it off to give it a Parisian feel. 

I was so inspired by this line, I made a second handmade item - a Versatile Envelope Pouch. If you follow me on Instagram, I made a wallet in a smaller version. For this make, I increased the size so you can hold more things like Stationary and such. I love text and map fabric and I knew I just had to make this pouch with the fabric.

Here's what I made:

Here is the Oui Oui Market Bag:

If you notice, I tried to add the colors of the French Flag!

It's reversible too! And oh the pockets!!

Here is the Versatile Envelope Pouch. I added 2 front pockets with vinyl and a back vinyl zipper pocket to hold everything in.

I hope you enjoyed Couturiere Parisienne. It should be arriving in stores soon, so check online or your local quilt shop!
