Julie's Shopping Bag

Image of Julie's Shopping Bag Designed by Julie A. Bolduc

This bag is really easy to make and is ample big enough to use for a quick trip to the local grocery store for just a few items. If you are determined to make a few of them, you should expect to spend about 8 - 12 hours on each one. It depends on how fast you do basic double crochet stitches.
