10 Crochet Bags You Will Love to Make!

Crochet bags are my favorite accessory to make. The crochet bag is so well-suited to the stiffer, sturdier, less stretchy structure of crochet stitches. There is so much potential for trying out new techniques and making bags large and small. If you’re on the hunt for a new crochet bag pattern, check out some of our favorites . . .

In the world of crochet, it is rare to see a structured bag made out of motifs, but this bag literally stands up to the challenge. Granny hexagons and triangles combine with join-as-you-go assembly to create an intriguing geometric design. A well finished double lining, complete with plastic inserts, provides structure. The result is a unique handbag that looks great from every angle.
