My first design (and how it’s different from other tote bags)

Single use plastic bags are on their way out in our state, and our local pharmacy has a middle-sized one that is great for those in-between loads. So I thought that before it disappeared – I’d better design myself a flexi-but-sturdy crochet version.

Reduce, Re-use, Recycle . . .

(In my defence – I will get it in a reusable travel cup if there’s one available). But I really miss the handle (whatever happened to those dodgy little paper handles they used to put on disposable cups in the good old days?) . . . Read More
