Kind Hearted Tote

I enjoyed making my Darling Bag so much that I wanted to make another bag again. This time I wanted something smaller that would work as a project bag.

If you know me you know that I have a collection of bags SO MANY BAG, so many! I collect 3 things mostly; yarn, candles, and bags.

I would label this bag beginner friendly. As long as you can count you’ll be able to handle making the Kind Hearted Tote.

  1. Hi. Good pattern! I simply wanted a firm bottom so, switched to a non-stretchy yarn & used the sc-bottoms used on “Columbian Drench Bags”, without a design. In other words a circle of sc. Then attached the yarn you suggested. The stitch-pattern you used has such an attractive texture.
