Brave Felted Tote Bag
"This is a super simple project of single crochet in the round. The bag has a flat bottom which makes it super functional for so many purposes! It begins at the base, and is worked in one continuous piece from base to handles - no sewing! Use it for a craft project bag, a special gift bag, or a decorative storage container. It would make a great market bag - and if you line it, you could totally rock it as a purse, too! Stripes, color blocking or monochromatic in one color, use 3 balls of Be So Brave Yarn in any combination that appeals to you, or your gift recipient."
