Farmer's Market Tote by Judith L. Swartz

This classic mesh tote is an ideal crochet shopping bag pattern. The extra-sturdy closed bottom and sturdy, long should handle keep the bag secure. Large enough to hold a week's worth of produce from the country stand yet small enough to tote a baguette; this lightweight yet powerful tote is collapsible and can be folded up small to keep it handy. The linen yarn provides strength without bulk, and the loose stitches keep this tote flexible. It's so useful, this crochet tote bag pattern is one every crocheter should keep in their stash!

Message in a Flower Bag by Jill Wright

This messenger crochet shoulder bag is made sturdy with felting. Unspun yarn is then used to needle-felt a design onto the flap. Make the pretty pansies shown or make up your own design. This crocheted bag pattern is created for intermediate level crochet advocates. While using felt for the base of this bag, you use untwisted yarn to do the needle work for the flowers. Needle felting is a more difficult art to master, but with the helpful guidance of the crochet expert Jill Wright, you will be a master in no time.

The Messenger Bag by Julie Armstrong Holetz

This crochet messenger bag is a great introduction to felting and colorwork. Blocks of color are crocheted into the front of this fun crochet bag pattern.
