About This Class

In our last workshop, we reviewed how to limit the number of tools we use by using tools for dual purposes like using a potholder loom to pin lace weave in order to make a mesh fabric. 

Now that we have mastered mesh fabric making, let's create a product from our fabric. Today I will show you how to make a basic mesh produce bag. It's the perfect item to pack into your handbag or backpack. 

You will need the following basics:

Two mesh woven squares

One crochet hook

One pair of scissors

One small ball of yarn

And that's it! I hope you enjoy this very short tutorial and I hope it gets your creative juices flowing.
