DESIGN INSPO

I always wanted to have a granny square tote bag and i always thought they would look great as bucket bags too.So i put myself on making a combo between a granny square tote bag and a bucket bag.What came out was this Granny Square Bucket Bag which is a staple now when i just need to run to the market or have a crossbody bag to hold my daily belongings and have my hands free to handle my son and his bicycle and other stuff that we moms need to carry.

YARN

I have made this pattern keeping in mind that i wanted something sturdy but also environmental friendly.Also i wanted a kind of yarn that would be very chunky so this bag could be finished up in a day or less. Thats why i went with RIBBONXL ,Chunky Recycled Cotton.You can find this kind of yarn everywhere.I’ll leave for you a few links below:
