Artsy Crochet Bag for Your Little Girl (Free Pattern)

This design won’t require you to be a crochet genius but will definitely put that precious curve on your little girl’s face. It works up really fast and can be added to your last minute gift ideas for this Christmas. Pattern uses Worsted weight yarn and Hooks I (5.5 mm) and G ( 4mm). An easy to work shape and simple embellishments give it that midas touch. Cute patterns don’t have to be hard at all, do they? It has a flower on one side and a bow tie on the other. Experiment with colors and make it your own. Changing the type of flower or adding a couple of leaves can also give it a new look.

    Love this….I would like to make it for a grownup. How many stitches would I need to enlarge this?

    I think you will have to chain extra 10 or 15 depending on how wide you want your base to be and add may be another 10 rows. I haven't tried this in bigger sizes, so it's just a guess that I am providing.

    I am making the purse for my granddaughter. I am almost finished with it. I am not sure how to sew on the braided handles.
    Thank you.

    You can sew it using some yarn and yarn needle or even slip stitch them on.

    I am still somewhat new to crochet. I love this bag, but I am having trouble understanding what you mean in the instructions for the sides after chaining 2 at the beginning of each row: "hdc in same stitch as chain 2, hdc in next" Once I chain 2 and the row I am about to work on is facing me, am I hdc in the first or second chain from the hook? Also, why isn't the stitch count increasing with every row every time I do this? If I am crocheting into the chains I added, isn't the stitch count also increasing? Thanks for your help! I hope I can be successful with this!

    My daughter lives in FL. I love this. I am going to make it longer so she can use it as a tote to go to the beach (where they live 90% of the time)

    @Anonymous, You are not supposed to crochet into the chains. Crochet into the same st as chain 2 means you crochet into the first stitch you see. In this case ch 2 will not be counted as a stitch.

    My girls just saw the picture and cannot wait to have one. Perfect for Easter.

    I've just finished making one for my daughter, with a few alterations… I can't stick to a pattern, no matter how hard I try!! 🙂
    I really just changed the colour pink to lilac & the flower to red!! Then made a longer handle out of thicker Rowan yarn by chaining two other colours together.. I made the bow braid red too & accidently put it in the wrong place, but it actually looks pretty okay through the lilac, so left it!! Great wee pattern, might make a couple more..

    This is such a cute design! I too was a bit confused by the pattern… where it says "1 sc into same st as ch 1". When I did what I thought it was telling me, I'd end up with too many stitches when the row was complete. I did it like I was taught and it came out to the correct number of stitches. Therefore, I'm doing whatever makes the stitch count come out correctly. Also… because I want a bigger bag, I'm adding 10 stitches to all rows. I'll let you know how that works out. Thanks for the patterns!! 🙂
