The Costermonger, a Merchant & Mills pattern

20.00

The Costermonger is a classic market tote designed as a backpack. It’s a simple, satisfying project that uses little fabric - so it’s ideal for gifts or for using up leftovers in your stash.

The yellow samples were made up in Merchant & Mills’ Yellow Dry Oilskin, which can be found here.  Their grey check fabric is called Prince of Wales check, which can be found here.

You will need: 

8 x 9mm rivets or Chicago screws

4 x 25mm/1″ metal sliders

2 x 25mm/1″ leather strap 89cm long (Note: If you are buying Merchant & Mills’ leather straps they come about 145cm long so you will need two.)
