Free pattern: Striped Bag with No-Sew Liner

Striped Bag with No-Sew Liner, free crochet pattern and tutorial by Underground Crafter | Crochet bags are perfect projects to make and use right away year round! This pattern includes a photo tutorial for the special stitches and links to a photo tutorial for making a no-sew liner.I love crocheting bags because you can put them to use right away, no matter what the weather. Confession time: I don’t love sewing in liners. Without a liner, there are limits to what can be carried inside of a crocheted bag. In yesterday’s post, I shared a photo tutorial for making a no-sew liner for any crochet or knit bag, and today I’m sharing the pattern for the bag that originally inspired the need for a removable, easy clean liner!
