Oh my goodness! Have you seen this adorable Snowman Tote Bag by Repeat Crafter Me?!?! It is so cute and fun to make. It works up quickly using 2 strands of worsted weight yarn. And she has several other tote bag patterns including a Santa, Gingerbread, and 3(!!) Halloween patterns.
You can find the Snowman Tote Bag (as well as the Santa) pattern link here. The Gingerbread pattern link is here and the Halloween pattern link here.

I used Yarn Bee Soft & Sleek yarn in White and Light Blue to stitch up my bag. I used a J/6mm hook (the pattern calls for an I/5.5mm). I had some Red Heart Super Saver yarn in Carrot that I used for his nose. The eyes are 1/2-inch buttons and the other 3 buttons are 1-inch. I stitched the buttons on using black yarn so they are very secure.
My finished bag measures about 10.5 inches wide by 14 inches tall including the handle – which is just a little smaller than the pattern measurements. It’s probably due to my using a different yarn and a difference in crochet tension. But it is still a great size!
These would make great Christmas gifts just as they are or filled with goodies for someone special! The Gingerbread tote is next on my list to make…which one will you make first?
