Port Waikato Market Bag


If you would like to read my thoughts on bags go to the Bags, Bags, and More Bags post.


I like crocheting bags far too much and now have far too many. Luckily it means I am never short of a bag when I have some home-grown produce to give away. This market bag will have everyone asking you where you got it from. With an integrated handle all you have to do is grab and go. The colours used evoke a sunset to me, and hopefully to you as well.
