Two simple but beautiful sunburst granny squares make for the foundation of the bag, but it can be customized in so many ways.

I have really been wanting to make this bag for a long time. I absolutely love crocheting bags! I have made several bags over the years, such as the super popular Gradient Blocks Handbag, Monhegan Beach Tote, and Splish Splash Mini Tote. Originally I thought I would expand the square to 12″, because that was about the size I wanted the bag to be, but once I got started I thought of how cute it would be to have four squares together instead. I’m so glad I made it this way! It’s fantastic!
