Free Patterns for Crocheted Bags

Crocheted bags have many uses, and I find that I can never have enough of them. They are great for carrying your groceries and books, or for organizing things, such as your crochet projects. No matter what kind, what size or style, they always come in handy one way or another.

Whether they are created with bright colors, flowered or plain, crocheted bags are not only fun and easy to make, but they are also fun to carry around.

Depending on the yarn and the crochet stitches used, crocheted bags can be quite stretchy. However, you can turn them into sturdy bags by lining the inside, including the handles, with a strong fabric. To line the bags, simply cut the fabric to match the bag leaving a little extra fabric for the seam-line. Then sew the pieces together along the seam line, and attach it to the inside of the crocheted bag. Always pick out a matching or a good contrasting color, especially if the bag has a lacy design to it.

Since bags are so popular, you can find patterns for them almost everywhere you go. They are very popular online and you can find tons of free crochet patterns for bags in all shapes, sizes and designs to suit your every need. Here is just a short list of free patterns for crocheted bags:

All American Plarn Bag - My Recycled Bags

Proud to be American! This bag is done in the American colors “Red, White and Blue.” You can crochet this beautiful bag with plastic yarn (plarn) or with a bulky yarn. The website has a link to an excellent tutorial on how to make your own plarn in case you have never worked with it. All American Plarn Bag

Artsy Crochet Bag for Your Little Girl - Crochet Dreamz

Here is a lovely bag for a little princess. The handles are braided, which not only makes them stylish, but nice and strong as well. The pattern also has instructions on how to crochet up a cute flower and bow for the sides of the bag. Artsy Crochet Bag for Your Little Girl

Aspen Bag - The Laughing Willow

The shape and other details on this bag are absolutely stunning! I always love free crochet patterns, but a pattern like this is almost too good to give away. It is done with Tunisian crochet, which is fairly easy to learn. If you have never done the stitches, the pattern gives basic instructions on how to do them. Aspen Bag

Bucket of Sea Shells - Chocolate Mints in a Jar

The textured stitches on this bag are very pretty, making it a stylish purse for just about every occasion. The free pattern provides you with instructions for making two types of stylish handles for the crocheted bag. Bucket of Sea Shells

Cinnamon Pass Snowflake Purse - Snowcatcher

If you love snowflakes, then you will love this snowflake purse. It has a nice circular shape to it, with a beautiful snowflake design in the center of the side. A must have for snowflake lovers. Cinnamon Pass Snowflake Purse

Hexagon Fall Flower Tote - CrochetN’Crafts

Despite the name “Fall”, you can make this bag in any colors that you want. It is pieced together with small hexagon squares, and the pattern provides instructions on how to do that. Hexagon Fall Flower Tote

Peachy Summers - Chocolate Mints in a Jar

I love the handles on this bag. They are crocheted and are worked along the same rounds as the last few rounds of the pattern. The pattern provides instructions on how to make the handles as long as you want. The stitches in this pattern are simple, yet work together to create a beautiful bag. Peachy Summers


If I have linked to one of your crochet patterns and used your image, but would rather that I didn't use it. Simply contact me through the contact tab at the top and I will gladly remove it.

Thank you.
