The lifesize is a generous size and durable using Red Heart Super Saver yarn. In my sample, I didn't complete the stitch right and noticed about one-quarter the way through the project and decided to keep it going because I was happy with the look. It looks very close to the original.
I used Caron One Pound for my sample because I didn't have Red Heart Super Saver. Michaels Stores no longer carries Red Heart Super Saver, a true shame as it limits my shopping in-person experiences, but Walmart certainly does. For my Caron One Pound Version, I got close to the same colours using Dark Pink and Living Coral.
Tutorial for Life Size
Doll Size Tote
If the doll-size inspires you. It is made with Anchor Embroidery Floss with a B or 2.25 mm crochet hook. It's pretty small to match the doll's size and is pretty cute. This is called the Anchor Doll Size Crochet Tote.
Another Bag to Consider
The Crochet Farming Fresh Tote Bag is a great grab-and-go bag. Easy to make, and there's a tutorial to follow if you need extra help.
