Grow your crochet skills and learn to make a wonderful market bag! Whether you are a beginner or experienced, you will enjoy learning how to make eye-catching granny squares and seaming them together to create a fun and functional market bag.
We will be learning how to make the Wildrose Market Bag, designed by Stephanie Lau. This bag is comprised of 13 Granny Squares, seamed together to create a sturdy and stunning bag perfect for all your summertime errands!
During the first class, we will learn the special stitches involved and make a Granny Square. In the second session, we'll learn Stephanie's "special" seaming technique and start attaching all of the squares together. In the last session, we'll learn the waistcoat stitch and start working on the straps. By the end of July, students will have a completed market bag!
