Shellz Pocket Baggy Crochet Pattern

$3,31

THIS PURCHASE IS FOR PATTERN PDF ONLY – NOT A FINISHED BAG

For some reason, I started crocheting market bags a few years ago and as I was crocheting the first couple, I was transported back to my childhood carrying my Nana Topsy’s shopping home. It was a good memory apart from the handles on her bag – they were really thin and in real string so they really cut into my hands on the walk home.

Since then, I’ve made a few as gifts, sold a few, each time tweaking the original pattern until I ended up with something I was happy with. Hers had a pocket to fold it into as well – I just don’t remember hers being quite this size but string isn’t the same thickness as 8ply cotton.

This pattern for a market bag has a double base which creates a pocket so the entire bag can be tucked away when not in use. It’s been designed by me, Shelley, using memories of my maternal grandmother’s bag as a guide.  Hope you enjoy making and shopping with yours … a little bit of my Nana Topsy.
