Eco Friendly Bag

By:

Crochet an eco-friendly bag to carry fresh produce from the farmer's market, daily essentials, or to tote your refillable water bottle. This is a quick and easy bag crochet pattern in eco-friendly cotton yarn and you can easily make more than one so you always have a bag to grab as you head out the door to the grocery store.  These bags allow produce to breathe and are lightweight, so they won't weigh you down if you find yourself toting more than one.  Easy enough for beginners, this crocheted tote is one pattern you may find yourself coming back to again and again.
