Cassandra from Cass Can Sew shows how to make a lined market bag out of a couple of vintage pillowcases. The lining looks pretty, and it also helps strengthen the bag (a good feature when you’re using old textiles that have already seen a lot of wear). A pocket on the inside is made from a scrap cut off the corner of one of the pillowcases. Get the tutorial.
