Crochet Mesh Shopping Bag

I've been enjoying my crochet projects lately. I searched online for patterns. OMG! There are millions of free patterns! Granted lots of them are not for me...there is NO WAY you can get me in a bikini, so crocheting one probably wouldn't be a good thing.
These were made from a free pattern that was on the label of Sugar 'N Cream yarn. I thought I'd give it a try. It was fun and easy. I added crocheted flowers.
Originally, I started making one as a gift. I started one bag with the yarn I had on hand. I got about 1/2 done and remembered a comment that this friend had made about not liking the color I was using. So, I got a different color and started another one. I hope she likes it.
Enjoy your day!

  1. I LOVE THESE BAGS!!! You did a marvelous job! Can you send me the link for the directions? (Are the flowers with it or did you make those up?) I am getting tired of making afghans, and I KNOW a bikini is also out of the question. :)

  2. I love this bag!!! What flower did you use for the turquoise bag (with purple flower), I think it goes perfectly with the bag.

    1. Hello! Thank you for taking the time to leave a nice comment! I had to think about what that purple flower pattern was as I'd made this bag a few years ago. I looked through my crochet flower books and I believe it is the "Loopy" flower out of the book "Crochet Bouquet" by Suzann Thompson.

  3. Thank you so much for your response, I'll check that book out. You're really done a wonderful job with these bags.
