Square Tote BagÂ By Lucy Djevdet
Find the pattern inÂ issue 124Â of Inside Crochet magazine.
Use two old belts for the handles to provide extra strength and structure. This is a great way to recycle and add a bit of colour to a simple bag project.

â—Â 5mm hook
â—Â Pair of bag handles, 110cm/43in long (recycled leather belts)
â—Â Yarn needle
â—Â Stitch markers
â—Â Revolving leather punch pliersÂ
Use any aran-weight cotton to achieve a similar effect.
Lucy is on a mission to make more functional crochet projects this year. She loves enjoying the projects she has made and incorporating new ways to recycle things around the home.
