Bag Lady

Well as I mentioned in a previous post, crochet isn't the only craft I like to do. I also really like to sew. One thing that is fun and quick to make is a tote bag, or really almost any kind of bag. Totes can be made in so many different ways, all different sizes etc etc etc. There's no end to the possibilities.

I made this tote in a bigger size for a cousin who is a school teacher. It is big enough to fit her 3" binder and a few other things. Along the outside are several pockets to put other items in such as a water bottle, pens, etc. A bag like this is also great for a beach bag, diaper bag, or overnight bag.

I haven't made very many since because I have been busy with other projects. Hopefully, once the new year comes and I catch up on crochet orders, I can put it aside and make some more bags. I found a program online to build simple bag patterns so I am hoping to print some off and make several different styles of bags. They are a great accessory and are very functional. AND you can never have too many bags.
