If you want to make a sturdy tote bag out of fabric, there are many ways you could approach the project. You could sew the tote bag, or quilt it -- but did you know you could crochet it as well?
Pictured here: a fabric crochet tote bag I made using a variety of vibrantly-colored cotton quilt fabrics. I wrote about the process in my article "crocheting with Stripz fabric strips." I also shared the free crochet pattern for the tote bag you see pictured. If you'd like to learn how to crochet a tote bag out of fabric, I think you'll find both resources helpful. I also encourage you to check out the other free rag bag patterns posted on the Internet. I've compiled a list of them for easy reference.
If you'd like to check out even more free tote bag patterns, I invite you to take a peek at my list of hand-crafted tote bags; the list includes crocheted bags plus bags made using several other different craft techniques.
