Bella Ruffled Bag (Free Crochet Pattern)

Share the Love!

This bag was made by Grace Anne of using my pattern. lovely isn’t it? I love how she added her own touch with a flower.

Whipping up this crochet pattern was so much fun because I have always had a  fetish for bags. I am not into any other accessories but choosing a bag has always been a herculean task for me. When I started crocheting seriously, bags were my first love. I have no idea how I shifted gears to baby booties.  I have always loved bags with ruffles but never owned one and this could be my first. I have left the bag unlined but you can line it if you wish to make it last longer.

This bag is the size of an over-sized clutch and just big enough to hold your essentials. The bag is 13 inches wide at the base and 9 1/2 inches tall including the handle. The bag is worked using worsted weight ( size 4 medium yarn) and an H(5mm) and G (4.25 mm)  crochet hook. You need to know only the basic crochet stitches and hdc2tog decrease to make this bag. The bag is quick to work up as the ruffles use double crochet stitches that makes your work grow quickly.

    I am confused. Page 6, round 5, says to 1 hdc until 3 sts left, then hdc dec twice, end in marked st. How do you hdc dec twice in only 3 sts? Don't you need 4 sts to work into? Help!!!

      1 hdc till 3 stitches left before the marked stitch. So including the marked stitch you will have 4 stitches.

    Thank you for the pattern! When I saw it I knew I had to make me this purse. Perfect timing too because my old purse was ready to be retired. LOL. I did make a few modifications though. I posted the link for the pattern to your site and my modifications on my blog.

    (took pain meds so I'm not sure if what I wrote makes any sense. LOL) I hope you'll check it out. Thank you again for the pattern.

    Thank you for creating this pattern and making it free! I made one for my friend and added a 4th row of ruffles! It is a very good pattern, pretty easy to follow. I am making a second one now and decided to crochet the whole base first the add the ruffles because I only have 1 large skein of the yarn I needed so makes it easier than having a couple skeins at a time.

    Such a gorgeous color, very vibrant and fun for summer! I loved it and want to make one. Thanks for sharing the pattern. This is really helpful. I am crazy for handbags. Yesterday too, I bought tory burch handbag online.

    This bag is awesome! I'm so excited to make it. I have just one question. What's the direction for the foundation chain?

    I had made a shawl with a yarn that transitioned from light purple to dark purple to dark blue to light blue and back to light purple. I was trying to find another project to do with this yarn and this bag just popped!!! So I’m going to do the bag in black and ruffles with this yarn!!
