Lady's Tote Purse Crochet Pattern

This is one of the first crochet patterns I designed.
I have made and given away a lot of these
through the years. The Original pattern was designed with Worsted Weight (4) yarns.

But, This Pattern can also be stitched up with Cotton yarn!
This one is crocheted using Caron Cotton cake.

Only 1 cake is needed!
It is the perfect size for an Ipad as well, Which I 
discovered after I bought an Ipad. And I take my
 Ipad everywhere with me.
I decided to re-test the pattern and re-release it.
It is the perfect tote to take to the farmers market
or use as a project bag.
It also makes a great book bag for Book club.
