To market, to market...




I don't think of myself as super "green"-- but I really do like to bring my own shopping bags to the market. (Don't you just hate having all of those little plastic grocery sacks in the house? I swear they multiply and you end up with a bin full of them if you're not careful) Anyway, I digress. I like to crochet my own bags; I just pick up my hook and some cotton yarn and have fun-- I really enjoy making them up as I go along; they're really simple to make. Here are my 2 most recent bags.
The second one is done with fptr, ch 3, sk 3 sts, fptr all around and it seems more sturdy than the net stitch (sc, ch 5, sk 3 sts, sc) on the first one. I think I will use the fptr more it really keeps the bag from stretching out.
