Any season is the right season for an open bag… well, perhaps with the exception of a snowy winter 😉
Open bags are great, because all your stuff is easily accessible, close to hand and easy to put back. Those of us who have simultaneously struggled with a wallet, a phone and car keys as well as an uncooperative purse closure know! Therefore, here are some ideas for crocheted masa bags that will just whisk away your organizational conundrum. They are beautiful, and indeed, artful projects with fun colors and transitions. Why not get cracking on them, just in time for the new school year and fall fashion choices?
The Masa Bag is a fun project made from a simple rectangle. What is amazing in this pattern is that you can use simple stitches, granny squares or many other favourite stitches you like to make this bag, and they will all work equally well. Moreover, you don’t even have to crochet this. You could also use a felted, knitted rectangle or a length of fabric.

Granny Masa Bag
Keeping in mind the versatility of this design, here is a granny square variation of the crocheted Masa Bag. Made from two big granny squares joined by smaller squares, this masa bag is definitely a well composed and matching accessory.
