Crochet Market Bag
Thu 7/6 & 7/13
Haley Waxberg, designer, writes: I designed this bag for utilitarian purposes with myself, my friends & family in mind. It is a sturdy, medium sized mesh bag that will be large enough to replace a regular size plastic bag from the grocery store. It comes out looking small but it holds a mighty load. It is designed to be just the right size to hold heavy groceries (like 4 heavy cans) without hitting the ground or falling out. They are also just the right size to avoid overloading and making the bag uncomfortably heavy.
