Simple Stripes Tote Bag

Simple Stripes Tote Bag
Simple Stripes Tote Bag

"Bags are my favorite thing to design and make. They are just so fun and functional! For moms on the go in particular, we need a bag to put our own purse in, as well as snacks, a water bottle, maybe a coloring pad and crayons. No worries, mom, this bag will fit all that! It measures 14″ by 12″ and has a generously sized shoulder strap, measuring 2-1/2″ wide. Perhaps one of my favorite thing about crocheting up a bag, is when you are a little ways done with it, you have a place for your ball(s) of yarn! Cotton yarn makes a really sturdy, easy to wash bag, and is fairly inexpensive. This project is also a great way to use your “economical” (perhaps a little bit scratchy) acrylic yarn. This is a fairly simple, easy to work up bag, so it's accessible to crocheters of all levels. Happy hooking!"

This hobo-type bag would be a great stash buster since it just uses simple rows to build the body of the bag. I live in a college town with another major university nearby, and I see coeds toting similar bags around campus. This would be a great gift for a teenaged girl. You could also make a smaller version for an aspiring diva, too.
