It’s Week 7 of our 12 Weeks of Gifting! Bringing your own bags to the grocery store is pretty standard, at least in our area. Since we are crafters, of course we always want to show of our handmade skills and this week’s free pattern certainly fits the bill. Check out the super cute Off To Market Bag.
Designed by the lovely Violet LeBeaux, this versatile bag will go with you everywhere. It’s knit from the top down in a mesh pattern, which stretches to hold all of your goodies. The sturdy straps are knit separately and sewn on, giving it a bit more strength. But best of all, it includes a cute little pocket, perfect for storing a phone or cash while you’re shopping and when the bag is not in use, it folds up conveniently into the pocket – making it easy to toss into your purse or backpack so you’ll always have it when you need it. It’s knit in Dishie with wide stripes of Swan & Azure but this is an easy pattern to knit up in one solid color or try Dishie Multi for a fun colorful bag.
