how to crochet a straw bag

Hi girls,

I hope you are as excited as me with this tutorial and pattern, as I have mentioned in the video , this bag was inspired from a bag I saw in mango shop and also about this summer trend called the straw bag.

To achieve the final look, I used 2 strands of cotton yarn to make it thick and solid, also I used  the double crochet stitch .

The yarn used in this project is sugar and cream, I used total of 10 Yarn balls of different colors which you will find the link below.

I think it's ideal to use it as a beach bag or grocery, be aware not use it for heavy stuff.
Enjoy the pattern and don't forget to watch the video to understand better.
