Market Produce Bag

Today is our first last day of school for 2010! I can't believe I'm saying this, but EJ is finishing her first "semester" today!!! Yikes! So of course she and I wanted to send some gifts to thank her wonderful teachers. When I found this crochet pattern for a produce bag, I knew it was the perfect fit, especially because our community's brand new farmers market opens in a few short weeks!


I purchased this organic cotton at Michael's (who knew right?) and EJ picked awesome colors!


And then I got to work crocheting! These are pretty quick...each bag took about a day (mixed in with the usual daily stuff I do of course), so probably (for a beginner like me) about a 6 hour project for each...I just wish I didn't choose to make 5 bags in 5 days! When I finished, we stuffed each bag with clementines and a thank you note!


I'd pat myself on the back for a job well-done, but I have a feeling (after my hand returns to normal) that I will be making one more of these (perhaps in a slightly smaller size) for a little girl I know to take to the farmers market herself!

Oh my god... LOVE those! So how much of a beginner were you exactly? Because I hardly even know what crotcheting is, but I really want to make one of those!

Leslie said...

GET OUT!!! Making those was one of the reasons I wanted to learn how to crochet!!! (I've got a looooong way to go before I'm ready to tackle that, I think!) I agree with Rachel . . . you should Etsy those!! You're my hero . . .
