I Heart Crochet Totes!By Caissa "Cami" McClinton – 6 Comments
OMG I totes love totes. (Scroll down for translation.)
I know, right!?
Translation: “My goodness, I am entirely fond of tote bags. Don’t you agree?”
I may sound a little giddy, but I don’t mind admitting that I do feel quite enthusiastic about crocheted totes. They’re so useful and so easy to make! I love a quick project and a good tote is definitely worth the return on investment.
As a whole totes are hearty, durable, and they’ll quickly become the thing you just take for granted in your life. You don’t have to treat a tote delicately because typically they’re made with workhorse yarns that will stand up to the rough ways we handle totes.
Here are eight great uses for totes:
– Keep one packed with your gym clothes and a towel.
– Hang one on the door to collect library books that need to be returned.
– Leave a couple in the car to use during shopping trips to the farmer’s market or grocery store.
– Dedicate one to wrangling your used grocery bags that will be repurposed for trash or recycling.
– Let the kids pack a small tote with their favorite toys du jour to keep them occupied while you are running errands together.
– Place round-bottomed totes on shelves to stow your YARN STASH!
– Keep a tote full of your favorite time-passers (books, journal, hand-held video game, crossword puzzles, crochet projects, etc.) in your car for those times you’ll be stuck waiting in line, at the DMV, or in a doctor’s waiting room.
– And last but not least – by all means, tote a crochet project bag!!
Here six great tote patterns that can be found right here on Crochet Spot!
Thanks, Rachel, for all of these totes fetch totes! Translation: “completely enchanting tote bags!”
