I’m super excited to release The Don’t Mesh With Me Market Bag! I’ve been dying to replace my not so pretty reusable bags with some Fab crocheted ones.
This could be one of the most practical usable things I’ve made! I specifically designed these for the market and shopping in general. But now I think I need them for project bags and the beach too!
I became a little obsessed once I started making them and ended up with 4 sizes! Little Meg needed one her size so I ended up with an extra small (children’s size) a small, medium and large. I decided the small shown below is good for heavy items. The medium perfect for produce and the large is perfect for light shopping items.
I shop for a family of 6 so you can just imagine the groceries I haul home! I’ve made several of these bags in bright colors for Spring. Read on to see what you’ll need to get started.
