Who doesn't want a cute grocery bag?
I saw these adorable crocheted grocery bags by Haley Waxberg on Ravelry and thought I think I can do this. But...my first try didn't work out (my fault!!!).
I was crocheting away two nights in a row while watching TV and didn't bother to mark my row as I went along and wasn't bothering to count the stitches in each row. Then I realized it wasn't looking right. I must have increased a million times more than I should have.
So...I decided to frog it and start over.
What a difference when you mark as you go and actually count.
It was a breeze to make after those adjustments. The bag is the size of a plastic grocery bag and will stretch out when items are inserted.

I made this to store my heating pad in.
I love it in RED!
|The only change I made to the pattern was to add one more row of single crochet to the top edge.|
You can find Haley's free pattern on Ravelry (here) or I can email a pdf file of the pattern to you. Visit Haley's website Knitomatic (here). These would make great gift bags too.
I was so pleased with the results I started another one in blue. The blue one will be for storage of another heating pad that will go into our RV.
|Crocheting in Blue...too!|
So glad you came to visit me!!! Have a lovely day!
