This is the perfect bag or purse to take to the beach, to work, to school, or to go shopping. It’s not only roomy, but it’s got style too! Crochet this bag for yourself or give it as a gift. And even better, you can use it as a gift bag that will keep on giving.
If using it as a purse or a bag for heavier items then you might want to line it with a non-stretch material. You can find a free photo tutorial for that here: How to Line a Crocheted Bag.
