Sunshine Market Bag

Save Environment!  Eco-friendly!

Say no to Plastics! Save Paper!

Whenever we listen to these quotes, adrenaline is rushing in our body to screaming to give our contribution too! We search for opportunities around. Now, how about a crochet market bag that could be used while shopping at a mall? Right!

You will feel proud whenever you use a market tote bag instead of a plastic or a paper bag. With interesting patterned bags, custom work bags you not only promote conserve the environment, but you also be a part of it.

More and more people start appreciating your efforts and participate towards saving the environment.

The customer follows the Eco-friendly mantras. Her favourite yellow colour gave me the default colour to go for a market bag that she was looking for. But instead of using yellow throughout, I thought of adding sections of white to give it a light sunny look.
