These 2 are my purses, I don't use the pink/gray one anymore- it's too small!!!



I made this tote bag (pic below), for all of my little crochet projects. It's nice, I added 2 large pockets, and a somewhat smaller one. And than a narrow long one from my knitting needles. My crochet hook case fits right in there perfectly, I posted it on this post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=4137.0  it's towards the bottom. The black & white one.



A girl saw my purse & my mom's purse (i made both) and thought they were cute, and wondered if I could make her granddaughter a little beach tote bag. So this is what I came up with.



I like the colors of the beach tote bag, I almost want to keep it for myself Wink

Are these lined?  How did you make the pockets?   They look GREAT!

I didn't put lining in them. I was going to, but the stitch seemed pretty close together so I didnt think anything was going to fall through, nothing has yet. So I just made little square patches for the pockets and than sewed them into the bag.

I'm glad you liked the pattern, I liked it was well. It's so fast to make, you can make it in a day...as long as you had a couple of hours or so.  I can't wait to see your pictures Wink I never thought about adding fringy yarn to the top, great idea!! I might have to try it!

hi mindy!! That is funny that you named your business with an i instead of a y. When I was little I would spell my name with a y because people could never spell my name right. Especially since my friends name was Mindy. Still to this day very few people spell my name right.  Undecided
