"Every summer we spend a lot of time in our travel trailer. I am always needing a bag for something. Whether it’s for a project, change of clothes, snacks or something else, I can never have enough bags. On our last trip, I decided I would try out a skein of the new Red Heart Super Saver Ombre and make a bag I could fit almost anywhere for those last minute needs. I had designed a “Farmer’s Market Bag” a few years ago and have used it a ton. This time I added a drawstring to cinch in the top, plus just one (instead of the original two) handle to make it easier to carry and hang on hooks when not in use. I hope you will like this simple, but super usable, tote."

I am impressed with the look of the Red Heart Ombre! It is done right. While I like my Caron Simply Soft yarns for many of my projects, their ombre is not really an ombre! It comes out like a variegated yarn. It is disappointing to me- I have been working up a long sweater vest in oranges and golds. It is NOT like this ombre! I love this bag, It looks rich. Great job designing this one!

Eew! Eew! Eew! I've really been wanting to work with some of the ombre yarns and this looks like the perfect opportunity! This pattern is designated "easy" so it should whip up in a snap. I like that the Market Tote in a Cinch has both the drawstring and the handle straps too. Great idea to slip beads over the ends of the draw string to keep it from slipping into the fabric.

Am I the only one that can't get the actual pattern? The page 1/2 loads but no pattern????

Hi sassie2u, I just checked the link and the blogger's site fully loads for me. Once you click through, wait a little bit longer or try refreshing your page? Thanks! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

Simple, but super market tote. Does anyone ever have too many totes? If there is someone out there that does then I have never met them. I like keeping several totes in my car for use when I am away from home. I try to remember to take them in the grocery with me at each visit so I dont have to use those awful plastic bags.
