Cotton Yarn + Lining Your Bag
Cotton yarn is great for crochet bags as it is sturdy and washable. Cotton yarns also do not pill like wool or acrylic yarns, so it is ideal for a bag that you will be wearing by your side.
I used the Premier Hipster Cotton, which I found at my local Michael’s store but you are welcome to use any cotton yarn you prefer.
I (highly) recommend lining this bag as the filet stitches already prove to be very stretchy and you do not want this bag to stretch down to the ground. Lining the bag with fabric will keep its shape and allow you carry heavy items without compromising the bag.
I kept the strap fairly short because I know it will stretch over time. You can line the strap portion as well to prevent stretching. Simply attach some fabric on the inside of the strap – the part that rests on your shoulder.

Strap is purposely made fairly short as it will stretch when worn.
Lining the bag is suggested in order to keep the shape of the bag.
