Super Simple Back To School Tote

Anyone who's spent some time on my blog knows I'm more than obsessed with bags. Especially tote bags. I have a ridiculous amount of crochet bags, in fact the first pattern I ever made was for a tote bag here

Since it's been a while that I've came out with a pattern, I decided to make something simple and easy. If you can single and double crochet, you can easily whip up this bag in a day or two.

I hope you enjoy!
