I can’t recall where I first saw this pattern – most likely on Facebook:
Mermaid Market Bag
The bag interested me; besides the Sakura bag that I mentioned in an earlier post, I hadn’t been so intrigued by a market bag design.

Also, I wanted to make something useful for one of my sisters-in-law. She has a lot of hobbies and this would be just the thing for her to stuff things into (once she’s able to return to participating in those activities…) I used Cotton Colors Yarn by Loops & Threads in Raindrop and had just enough yarn to finish it. I did crochet an extra ring on the bottom and did sixteen rather than fifteen fans, so a slightly larger bag will use up exactly one skein of this yarn.
