Hello! and welcome to this month's Sustainable Pinterest Challenge. This month is to reduce single-use products or upcycle single-use products.
It was a no-brainer for me to make a market bag. I personally use reusable bags (or use paper bags) whenever I am shopping.
I think there are hundreds of crochet patterns on Pinterest for market bags, here are a few I pinned:
I did not use any of these patterns. I just whipped up a couple of market bags I liked the pattern stitch I saw in one of many pattern books and incorporated into a bag. The yarn I used to make the bag was vintage. I forgot what it was called, but it was viscose yarn. This particular bag would work out to put produce in.
This bag I made a front and back panel. I made the sides and bottom connecting the front and back panel along the way. I have already used this bag to carry groceries.

Now it is time to see what everyone else did.
