Square Granny Shopping Bag | Posh Pooch Designs

Square Granny Shopping Bag
Crochet Pattern 
By Sara Sach of   Posh Pooch Designs

I Love This Bag with or without the fabric Cube inside.
You can find these Fabric cubes at just about any dept Store.
Target, Walmart, IKEA, Home Goods, And
 Even The Dollar Stores.
You can slide the cube in for use, and then out if you need
 to wash the bag. And it does not add any extra weight to the bag.
I Love This Shopping bag because you have a nice sturdy bag.
 It will hold all sorts of groceries, books, toys and even yarn.
And it will not roll around the back of the car.

In the written pattern it says size is 14x14 in video you say size is 11x11. My 9 row sq is 12x12. Does it really matter the size of the sq?

A pattern like this doesn’t really matter what size of square the first side measures, as long as you will be happy with the finished size of the bag. You just need to keep in mind that the front and back of the bag should measure exactly the same, & the 2 sides also need to measure the same as each other as well. The side pieces could be narrower or be the exact same size as front & back pieces, whatever you would like for your finished product. The bottom piece should measure to fit accordingly.
Ps- If you make the back piece higher than the front piece this would make a flap so your bag could close (using a simple tie or a button/loop enclosure).Make sure to make the flap measure - at least the width of the sides plus approx 2-3 inches or more if you prefer.
