Free Crochet Bag Pattern

This bag is made from 13 corner-to-corner (C2C) squares, each with a music note on it. After you crochet the squares, you just sew them together and add a guitar strap to finish it off. Instructions for adding crochet straps are also included.

This easy crochet bag 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 white and dragonfly.
  • Yarn needle: Use this to weave in your ends.
  • Scissors: Use scissors to fasten off your yarn.
  • Stitch marker(s): Use these to help keep track of your stitches. 
  • Guitar strap: I used an adjustable crossbody guitar strap for my bag.
  • D hook rings (4): I used these exact D rings. The pack comes with a variety of colors. I used the gold color to match the clasps from the guitar strap.

Crochet Bag Pattern Assembly

Arrange your squares like the picture shows. The music notes below the red line should be upside down. Then, use a tapestry needle to sew all the squares together.

With the inside of the bag facing you, fold the bottom up where the red dots show. Next, fold in the sides where the black dots are, and use a tapestry needle to sew the seams.

Add the D Rings

If you want to add crochet straps, you do not need to add the D rings. Scroll down for instructions.

You will sew the D rings to the inside of the bag. Fold the top of each corner down and sew around the flat part of the D ring. Make sure it is very secure.
