Market Bag Mania

Are you ready for the upcoming season of Farmer’s Market’s??  Soon the season will be here where in our communities the markets will be getting under way!


I have been working solely on children’s items the last few weeks to prepare for the art walk here in town… I was so ready to move on to something new… Something I had never made in my crochet career.  I wanted to make something quick and easy,  no pattern required…. So, I browsed crochet sites and sifted through my stash to get some fresh ideas… A MARKET BAG… Yes, I have always wanted one and knew it would be easy and quick! I had plenty of cotton yarn to complete at least 1 or 2 bags!



My Newest Creation,,, A Market Bag…


It has a solid Single Crochet bottom and Triple Crochet mesh sides.  In just a couple of hours it was done… It is large, the picture doesn’t do it justice!  The bag itself is about 18″-20″ tall the base is 12″-14″ across.  From my shoulder it hangs mid-thigh with nothing in it… Perfect for a big shopping trip…  It would bring home a lot of yarn!


But like most crocheter’s, I decided to not keep this great creation… So off it goes to Alpine Originals for some other lucky shopper!  I couldn’t just make one of course… So, the base of a coral one is already started!


So here is to Crochet and Market Bags…
