Collapsible Market Tote


Have you seen the Collapsible European Market Tote? My sister-in-law bought me one and I plan on embroidering WV on the side. (it's blue) I want to get a couple more and embroider initials on the side for gifts. The baskets collapse for easy storage and are perfect for transporting my groceries to the RV every weekend, lunch on the boat, tailgating, grocery shopping, going to the pool or beach, the uses are endless. I need to work on my design in the Artista software before I embroider it. Probably do a test stitch out first. I do not want to mess up my tote. The canvas comes off of the metal frame and therefore it is easy to embellish with embroidery. I also found this pattern to make your own collapsible market tote. I think I'll start with emblishing a ready made tote and if it goes well then maybe I'll order the pattern and make one.

They're really cute! I love the red one and your idea of the embroidery is a good one!

I have to give credit where credit is due. It was my sister-in-law's idea to embroider the totes. She found this great tote and gave me one. I love it.

They're great and will look really nice with embroidery, but I love the pattern! Only where do you purchase the frames?

NOw that's COOL. I've never seen anything like this - how convenient it would be to have one hand.
