Today I’m so happy to share the Medina Market Tote easy crochet pattern with you all!
I love this cute bag because it is so useful and fun to make.
You could definitely crochet this bag in a weekend (maybe even several bags!).
This is a great project for beginners because you only need to know how to chain, single crochet, and double crochet.
This bag is designed with sturdy handles and a reinforced bottom so your bag will last longer!
Market bags can be used for so many things:
- fruits and vegetables
- light books
- drawing/art supplies
- fill it with goodies for a housewarming gift
- use it for a get well basket
- keeping things organized
- if you have other ideas, please share!
I have to talk about this fabric yarn, that I really love. This yarn is made from recycled fibers from the garment industry and is 80% cotton. It’s very durable and therefore perfect for things like bags, totes, purses, and backpacks. It’s also super bulky so it works up very quickly. Plus, it’s easy to find. The Love Crochet website has this Hoooked RibbonXL in a ton of beautiful colors. Wouldn’t it be fun to make one in every color?
Here’s a peak at some of the information in the pattern to get you started:
