The June Tote is a lightweight reusable bag great for your summer essentials or strolling through the farmer’s market. Two handles allows this market tote to be handheld or slung over your shoulder. Make one, make two or make a few to keep on hand for the grocery store.

I’ve included a photo tutorial on how to get this bag started. I used one of my favorite stitches, what I call the v-arch. It’s just a v-stitch with ch 3 instead of ch 1, but I love it. I first used it in my summer poncho/coverup The Merletto Poncho.
