"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

I saw one of these already made up at Joann's and Immediately thought of the ones I could make and actually use. They don't necessarily have to be done for crocheting projects but would be good for storage if you are short on space. I could totally see these bags under the cabinet especially in the bathrooms.

I could not pull up instructions. Please help. I would love to make this. Thank you.

@nanrob719 2124246 all the instructions are available above on the page. Plus, you can look below for some more clarification. Hope that helps! -Kaylee, Editor of FaveCrafts.com

please let me know asap if the designer will be able to clarify the instructions on the handles. I have completed the basket to the beginning for the handles.

Hi there - I have reached out to the designer and will update the pattern with addition instructions ASAP. Thanks!

Hi there - here is more information from the pattern designer, Robyn: "What the instructions are doing is setting up where the handles are placed on the bag. You can ignore the stitch numbers, and start anywhere, chain the number of stitches that give you the length of handle you want( I did 6), slip stitch, and then single crochet around till you get to where you want the next handle, chain the same amount of stitches(6), slip stitch and single crochet till you come back to the first handle. The second round, single crochet around, including the handle, and slip stitch to end." Hope that helps - Julia from FaveCrafts

I don't understand the final part for the handles. Please clarify
