Crocheted Market Bag Pattern

Crochet a Quick Market Bag or Five!

It’s almost time for my annual girlfriends’ retreat.  Every year, we meet in a different location of the country to scrapbook, craft and basically just have a lot of fun.  This year’s retreat is in Houston, Texas.  I am very excited because we are actually staying in a house right near the beach.

One of the fun things we do is make little gifts for each other.  I usually show up with some nice crocheted washcloths for everyone.  This year, we only have 6 people who can attend, so with the small group, I decided to go a bit bigger and crochet each person a market bag.  These will also make great beach bags because of the mesh design.

I choose the Lily Sugar ‘n Cream Market Bag from the Yarnspirations website.  Let me tell you, this was the quickest bag every.  The pattern is great for a beginner to learn how to make a fun bag.  It is well written and easy to follow.  I made each bag in just a few hours.  The solid colours used only 2 balls of yarn and the striped ones used a bit more than 2 balls.

If you are in need a fast gift, I recommend this pattern.  I also think this would be a great seller at a craft fair booth for those of you always asking for suggestions of crocheted items to sell.

If this is something you would like to see Mikey do a video tutorial for, leave him a comment and let him know. 😉
