Farmer’s Market Bag Crochet Pattern
I’m always looking for ways to be more sustainable, which is why I was so excited to create this market bag pattern.
I often find that some more traditional crochet bag patterns can be a little dull or simple, so I wanted to create a bag pattern that would be unique – with a little character.
This bag has a modern, boho feel and it’s designed to be both sturdy and stretchy to accommodate all of your shopping needs.
This bag is a great alternative to a tote and is perfect for outings from shopping at the farmer’s market and grocery store to carrying along snacks on road trips.
It also makes a wonderful beach bag to hold towels, sunscreen, anything else you might need.
This bag takes a little time to crochet up, but I promise it’s all worth it!
I’m in love with this pattern and have gotten nothing but compliments so I know you’re going to love it as much as I do!
