My altered version of  the Reduction Tote  Bag by Anne Frost.  You can find the pattern here:

www.crochetme.com/reduction-tote-bag

All the thread came from my stash and lots was picked up at the thrift store months ago.



I used the Willow square from 200 Crocheted Blocks but added a few xtra rows. I did about 10 less rows for the mesh because I find this stitch plenty stretchy so I didn't think I needed as much height as the pattern called for.

I still need to sew on some buttons. I am sure I have some stashed somewhere. 



You can see the the flap is showing on the outside of the square. I might put the flap on the inside so when it's all folded up it so it doesn't cover up the pretty square.
