Spring Inspired Tote Bag – Free Crochet Pattern

Here’s another free crochet pattern for you to work on. I have made a cute tote bag for myself. I really love nature and I thought of making a spring inspired bag. The colors also reflect nature. Brown is the earth. White signifies purity and innocence. Blue is the sky and the flower and the leaves signifies nature itself. 
 
Crochet one for your love ones who loves nature like me. I’m pretty sure they’ll love it.
