I decided it was time to whip up a bag because I haven't made a crocheted bag. Truth be told, I think they stretch too much even when they are meant not to stretch. Anywho, I knew what I was getting into when I made this market bag. You can see that my bag was able to hold a French Dictionary, a mini Italian dictionary and a map of Rome quite comfortably. As of late, I've been using it as a lunch bag when I forget my usual one at home.
As you can see the bag is pretty small. I didn't really follow the pattern to a tee as I like to improvise as I go along sometimes. But, I would like to give props out to a fellow blogger and crocheter named Cassie. She posted this pattern and I have the link for you if you're feeling crafty or crochety!
