Carry The World Crochet Tapestry Crochet Bag Free Crochet Pattern

Every time around April I find myself thinking of ways that I could help protect this beautiful planet we live on, and one of my favorite practical ways to do this is to use re-useable tote bags! Growing up I lived in San Luis Obispo County, which was one of the first counties in the U.S.A. to get rid of plastic bags being used in stores. At first it was so strange to get used to bringing my own bags everywhere, and I didn’t like that extra step at all. However, I soon learned that making and buying reusable tote bags can be completely addicting! So as I was trying to come up with some ways that I could crochet to help the planet, I was inspired to design my Carry the World Tapestry Crochet Bag! Inspiration Behind Design This inspiration for this design mainly…

Have you ever been like that? I also never thought that I would actually be able to make my own clothes. How could someone who wasn’t confident in fashion make something of her own? I thought that crochet garments were extremely difficult and my skill would never…
