Crochet Produce Bag

Ok, let me just say ....
I found this fabulous pattern on a Blog called Oh the Cuteness and boy is it cute! I made it in just a couple hours, literally and it took only about half a skein of Peaches & Cream 100% cotton yarn. I used 4 Ply Worsted Weight in Black Cherry. And let me just say here - I'm totally in love with this yarn! I've been waiting to use it (I bought, like 4 skeins of it that have been sitting in my Yarn Box) until I was finished with the projects I had already in the works. It's really great yarn! I love 100% Cotton. It's so Amazingly different than anything I've worked with so far.
So I knew this yarn would be perfect for the Produce Bag when I stumbled across the pattern. When it's not being used, it takes up no space whatsoever in your tote or purse, so you can keep it with you all the time! Take it out at the grocery store when you go shopping or better yet, to the Farmers Market. It's wonderful as an alternative to all those plastic bags at the grocery that you just end up throwing away as soon as you unload your groceries. Drop in your oranges, apples, a head of lettuce, and a bundle of asparagus. It's made up of pretty much of just chain and slip stitches and the pattern is very easy to follow. And the end result? Fabulous!! It's so perfect! I love it!!
