About This Class

In this class you'll learn how to crochet a cute market bag that you can use for just about anything.  If you're a beginner or new to crochet, this is a great project for you because I will walk you through every step.  The super bulky yarn works up very quickly and this project can be completed in just a few hours!

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 designed the bag to have sturdy handles and a reinforced bottom.

This bag uses fabric yarn, which is becoming more and more widely available. I got mine on the site Love Crochet and I used the brand Hoooked RibbonXL.  It comes in a whole bunch of colors, which I just love!

If you need a 10mm crochet hook, I love this aluminum one (affiliate link).

I hope you enjoy the tutorial and please let me know if you have any questions!
