As promised, here are pictures of the Market Tote so far:
I am using a coiled basket technique using crochet and a filler cord. In this case, the filler cord is more plastic bags.
I have never tried this technique before, so I did the easiest coiling method, which is circular. It looks amazingly like a raffia basket to me.
I love how the bottom looks. The white strand is my row marker. I will remove it once the basket is complete.
My coils are a bit uneven. As this is my first attempt, I'm not going to stress myself out about it too much.
It is much smaller than I thought it would turn out, so I am going to undo the top three coils and turn this into a basket. My next project will be an oval bottom Market Tote (which is what I wanted in the first place).
