Are you ready for the fourth and final bag in my “Seeing Spots” collection? Hold onto your crocheted hats because here it is, the 9 Ball Tote! It’s humorous but totally wearable, fun and sophisticated. And best of all it’s practical. This baby is durable and makes a great project bag!

Haul this beauty all over town filled with library books, or water bottles, or your current WIP plus the other 30 things you need to leave the house (or is that just me?).

It’s strong because you will be crocheting a tight single crochet throughout the bag while holding two strands of worsted weight yarn together (double the yarn, double the strength, double your pleasure, double your fun, it’s the right one The Doublemint gum). FYI this pattern is not sponsored by Doublemint Gum but that would have been an awesome tie in if it was! But seriously, the fabric is thick and strong. Even your cracker crumbs aren’t going to fall through this bag. It’s that dense.

This bag was inspired by my crochet roots in amigurumi. I eventually worked my way over to fashion accessories. But I still love amigurumi and thought it would be really fun to incorporated those humorous, lovable shapes into a sophisticated bag for fashionable women. Could I do it? I just did!!
