Free Crochet Purse Patterns for Beginners

Updated on March 4, 2013

I was doing crochet while watching my favorite show. Well to be honest, I had no pattern no idea in my head. I was just plainly making single crochets and the above video is the outcome. Lets Learn how to make this simple single crochet purse.


2 Different color ball of yarns

Size 5 crochet hook (well i just like size 5 crochet hook)

Tapestry needle

Fancy Decorative Button

Pair Of Scissors (always good to cut off that extra thread!)


Single Crochet

Chain Stitch

Slip Stitch


How to make:(Base)

Take the one color yarn that is the base color of the purse.

Ch 31.

Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from the hook and in each ch till the end. ( 30 single crochets)

Row 2: Ch 2 (counts as Sc here and everywhere), Sc in the next Sc and continue till the end.

Make 12 rows of Single crochets.

Color 2: Ch 2, Sc in the next Sc and continue till the end.

Make 2 rows with color 2. (row 13 & 14)

Row 15: (base color) Ch 2, Sc in the next Sc and continue till the end.

Make 10 rows with the base color.

Repeat 2 rows of color 2, And again make 10 rows with base color the same way mentioned above.(twice). You will have 3 stripes of the second color. and four patches of blue.

Row 49: (second color) : ch 2, CSc in next 13 Sc, Ch 4 and skip next four Sc (Makes an Eyelet for the button), Sc in the 5th Sc and continue till the end.

Row 50: (second Color): Ch 2, Sc in each Sc and the 4 ch stitches.

Fasten Off. (Base complete)

For Making 2 Sections:

With Base color - Ch 31

Row 1: Sc in the 2nd ch from the hook and continue Sc in each ch till the end.

Row 2-12: Ch 2, Sc in the next ch and continue till the end.

Fasten Off.


Sew the section made from three sides in the center of the Base. Then fold the bottom part of the base over the section sewed and sew with the sides with the help of the tapestry needle. Fold the top part of the base and sew the button in the correct place on the bottom part so it slides into the eyelet.


To give my purse a cute look. I made a flower and sewed it on to my purse. You can make any motif and give your purse a unique look.
