Easy to make and simple to toss into your car on the way to the grocery store, the park, or the beach, these reusable mesh bags are crochet projects you will undoubtedly use in your everyday life. Twinkie Chan, crochet designer and author, teaches you how to use a triangular or delta mesh stitch that allows your bag to be stretchy and light weight, and a solid panel of single crochet stitches and half double crochet stitches to make the bottom of the bag nice and strong. Make a smaller bag with a drawstring for organizing and separating your fruits and vegetables. Both bags are easy to wash and can be used around the house as stylish and earth-friendly storage options.
