This tote bag features a lattice stitch center flanked by braided cables. There is a tree of life traveling stitck on the ends (gussets) and a plain single crochet bottom.

I lined my bag with a free tote bag from one of the yarn companies and sewed it to the crocheted bag on the sewing machine. You could also make a lining, but it should have some type of lining to hold its shape.
