Market bag pattern-testers needed

I’ve finished up my first go at a crochet pattern. I love this market bag, it is very user friendly and 100% machine wash and dry. I need some lovely folks to test out the pattern and see if it works for them. This is my first pattern ever so I’m sure it is lacking in perfection. Please leave me comments and let me know what you think
