Finished crochet tote

I finally completed my first attempt at a crochet motif tote bag. I started the project a couple of weeks ago and had the holiday weekend to complete. I added canvas lining for stability, did the whip stitch to connect the canvas and the crochet tote.

Made one of each motif and connected with a Slip stitch (including the sides of the bag)

Granny Stripes
Granny with a twist
Cranesbill lace
Stripe block (2)
Blooming granny
Mesh with flowers
Tricolor (only used two colors)

For the bottom of the bag, three rows of Dc.
For the handle I did the mesh stitch, but still looking for two leather handles to connect to the sides of the bag.
