It's a pretty sure bet that no matter where you live or what your station is in life there are more than a few pieces of clothing laying around that never get worn. A great way to get a little more use out of these is to find a free rag bag crochet pattern to your liking and make an item that can be put into service for anything from carrying groceries to storing small gardening tools and much more. Rag bags are a lot less intimidating to make than most believe - the projects are little more than cutting cloth into strips and then crocheting them into a design in much the same manner as yarn would be used. The major difference is that crochet rag bags are stronger, free of cost because there are not made of yarn and generally way more colorful.
