Auction No. 17: Two crochet market totes

11 Aug

Meet Joyce, of Fort Wayne. She is a second time Joey’s Auction crafter. This year, she’s made two crochet market totes, perfect for carrying your haul from the farmer’s market or grocery store. Both bags are made from 100 percent cotton yarn. They are machine washable and dryable.

Each bag is made with 16 individually crocheted squares which are then put together in a spiral-like construction for a really cool affect. I whip stitched the squares into strips and then slipstitched the panels to one another for added stability. The handles are crocheted directly onto the bag for extra stability too. The larger bag (yellow, mauve, green) is 13-inches deep by 13 1/2 inches wide with a 10 1/2-inch handle. The smaller bag (browns and peach) is 10 inches deep and 11 1/2 inches wide with a 10 1/2-inch handle. Both bags fit two half-gallon containers of milk. It should be noted that because they are cotton, use of the bags will cause them to stretch. When that happens, I typically wash and dry them.

You can find Joyce on her blog, My Craft Place.

I won’t be able to close this or the following two auctions on time this weekend, so it will run a tad longer than previous auctions. This will conclude Sunday evening. Want more details about Joey’s Auction? Click here.

    (Although I maintain they are too pretty to take to my “market”!)

    I love your site. Will love for you to visit my crochet site and sign up to be featured as crochet of the month. And by the way, I just got engaged on Christmas and you might just be getting an email from me about some jewelry. Take care.
