Fresh Market Crochet Bag Pattern

Fresh Market Crochet Bag Pattern
by Kristin Omdahl

Handmade bags are such a fun way to accessorize your outfit. In my 15 year career as a knit and crochet designer, I have designed dozens of bags. In this tutorial, I am going to show you step by step how to crochet an adorable market bag. You can use it in so many different ways. You can take it to the market (obviously), take it to the beach, use it as a travel bag, or line it and make a super cute summer purse. In this tutorial, you will also learn how to modify the design to make other sizes.
