Free Crochet Bag Pattern

This pattern offers two chic style options. You simply crochet ten of the c2c heart squares and then sew them together based on the style of bag that you prefer. It’s fun and easy!

PDF Version

This easy crochet pattern is also available as an ad-free PDF in my Etsy Shop.

Video Tutorial

I have a corner to corner (c2c) video tutorial on my YouTube channel to help you get started if you are new to this crochet method. 

Note: In the tutorial I chain 5 for a new row and chain 2 for a new square. I no longer do that. I prefer to chain 6 for a new row and chain 3 for a new square.

Materials Needed

  • Crochet Hook Size: G-6 4 mm
  • Yarn: Worsted weight yarn. I used Lion Brand Yarns 24/7 Cotton in the colors white, aqua, and magenta.
    • 2 skeins of the background color (color A)
    • 1 skein of the heart color (color B)
  • Yarn needle: Use this to weave in your ends.
  • Scissors: Use scissors to fasten off your yarn.
  • Stitch marker(s): Optional. Use these to help keep track of your stitches.

Border

Add a border to each heart square. I used the same color that I used for the background (color A) of the square.

Make 2 sc in each square along the sides and in each corner square make (2 sc, ch 2, 2 sc).  

Assembly

You have two assembly options.

Arrange your squares like the picture shows with the “right sides” facing you. The hearts below the solid black line should be upside down. Use a tapestry needle to sew the squares together.

Fold the bag in half along the black line. Make sure the “right sides” of the squares are facing outward. Next, fold in the sides along the colored (green or pink) lines. Sew the seams together.
