The design of this ultra-useful market bag is inspired by colorful weavings from Mexico and the Southwestern US. The handles are just the right length for the bag to feel comfortable on your shoulder or in your hand. Choose your favorite colors to make your own bespoke bag.
The bag is made from 13 identical motifs which are then crocheted together on the right side to create a decorative ridge seam between motifs. The handles and fastening tab are made amigurumi-style, as tubes, for added strength. A magnetic snap is concealed under the button on the fastening tab for extra security.
