In the Designer's Words: No more plastic bags! Crochet our own pretty market bag and carry your groceries in style. This crochet market bag is easy to make, using the linen stitch.
Market bags are the perfect way to combine your love of free crochet patterns with practical uses. While buying recycled bags might seem like a cheaper and easier solution, those bags are not made to last ironically enough. If you tend to carry a lot of heavy groceries and need something sturdy for your veggies, then check out the Striped Crochet Market Bag. This crochet pattern makes the perfect market bag, because it is roomy, sturdy, and easy-to-carry. Apples, oranges, and even canned goods will easily be carted in this cutie.
The Ultimate Recycled Market Bag is the best thing you can take shopping. Because it is made of plarn, or cut up plastic grocery bags, you are still taking grocery sacks to the store with you. (Learn How to Make Plarn with the FaveCrafts video tutorial.) This way is just much greener and safer than using regular plastic bags and works well if you just want to run by the outdoor farmer's market. Be environment-friendly while you do your regular weekly shopping with this free crochet pattern that is the perfect recycled bag to use every single week.
If you're like us, you likely never leave your local farmer's market empty-handed. Instead of toting everything home in a plastic bag, though, what about using your crochet skills to create the Linen Market Bag? This pattern is easy to make and includes a mesh design that can hold your veggies, cheese, and other goodies. The crochet bag pattern is stylish, and the bag can be folded up and stashed in your car or purse when it's not in use. You just might get requests to crochet a bag or two from family and friends!
This backpack is crocheted from recycled plastic bags. It's a great crochet pattern if you are environmentally friendly. This is a perfect pattern even for a beginner.
With a free crochet bag pattern and this Linen Grocery Tote you can easily find a way to carry all your groceries in the store. Get earth friendly with your new bag instead of using a paper or plastic bag that you'll just throw out. Reuse and recycle!
