A lot of women love handbags and I am one of them. You do need several styles in your stash - a clutch to hold a few things when you go out in the evening; a small bag for short trips to the shops; a larger bag for work to carry your lunch etc in; and a big tote to carry your crochet project or for the beach etc. What I am getting at is that you need a variety of bags, so see below for some great patterns to make your own.
I thought this one was very Springy and perfect for carrying your project in. It is from NTMaglia Crochet on Etsy and is available here. There are several great tote patterns in the shop, together with some smaller bags as well.
