Beach Tote

How have you gone this long without this crochet tote? It’s big enough for your crochet project, water bottle, sunscreen, snack, and the latest issue of Interweave Crochet, with an outside pocket for sunglasses or a phone. The crochet bag cinches when you slide the strap onto your shoulder. You’re good to go.
