A tote like this will have a million uses at my house. We are always on the run and at times I will be needing a "bag" to stuff things into and get going. Trips to the library, we always need a bag to bring in all the books and not to mention the sporting events we attend with the kids. This is just the right size for so many functions at my house.

This pattern is just right to make and use for a "Movie bag". When the kids and I go out we bring our own snacks because they can be a little expensive at the theater.

A very nice looking tote and one that I am going to be very happy to use to do the shopping. Not crazy about the colors used but that is simply personal preference and I can very easily change that. In all likelihood I will add a few more rows because I like my totes to be on the large size. All in all, though, it is a great pattern and it is Easy too which is always a bonus for me!

A pretty decent bag here in this "Summer Stripes Crochet Bag" pattern. I uses regular worsted weight acrylic yarn and not the usual cotton that you would expect for constructing a bag. I also have a feeling that the colors did not photograph very true to color. Maybe that is what is throwing me off a bit. The idea seems nice, though. Just an all around basic tote for bumming around town!
