Lady's Shopping Bag Crochet A Long | Posh Pooch Designs

 Lady's Shopping Bag Crochet A Long
Crochet Pattern
By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs


The Ladies Tote Bag was one of the first Bag Crochet
 Pattern designs I actually wrote up. It was originally made 
out of Red Heart Super Saver yarn and  Scrap yarns.




But I really love the striping yarns for this bag.
It is the perfect bag for shopping, and produce at the
 Farmer's Market. It also makes a great book bag, Ipad bag, 
project bag, tote bag, and overnight bag.


Please, Remember To Refresh Your page
 after each step 
so you will not miss the video, 
updates and new pics.


It can be stitched up in cotton, Acrylic and blends, 
 and just about any any med (4) weight yarns.
Whatever fiber is your preference, it will work.
I like to make them in cotton yarn for produce and shopping.
 I like acrylic yarn for books, Yarn and other items.
This bag has so many uses.
