Where is the picture for this project? I also went onto the web site, yarnspirations and there was no picture either.... Would love to SEE what the project will look like before attempting to make this.

Hi Rio, The photo should be appearing now. Thanks! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

Oh my, I love this Helping Hands Garden Bag! The written pattern right here on this page is so well written and easy to understand I'm making a few of these.. One for the garden to put veggies and my tools in and on to give as a gift to use as a diaper bag. I think you can use velcro closures to the inside of the main part of the bag and it will be a sweet diaper bag. Using the Lily Sugar 'n Cream cotton yarn is also a good choice because it will wash up nicely. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

Great idea! Wish I had thought about something like this, and it is the perfect time of the year to make one or two of these as everyone is beginning to thaw from winter and starting their spring planting. A liner for this would almost be a must in order to keep the points of tools from poking through the yarn. Garden tools are heavy also so how much weight can the handles hold without becoming stretched out of shape?

I would add a round of slip stitches around each handle. That should help keep it from stretching too badly. Doubling the handles and adding a fabric liner between layers would work well too. I would also reinforce the holes the handles pass through to keep them from stretching out of shape.

This is a great bag, and quite roomy. I like it for my projects. The pockets hold quite a lot too. I dont think I would use regular yarn if I was to use this in the garden though. I dont think it would be very durable, especially with garden tools, etc. Maybe a twine or heavy string or cord would be better for that purpose.
