Crochet boho bag

An Easy Level Crochet Pattern

This pattern is for anyone who is an advanced beginner.

This purse pattern uses basic techniques, including; how to chain and single crochet.

I made the bag using cotton yarn – The Tape Yarn from We Are Knitters in a bright minty color.

It’s so great to crochet with and I used my size 10 mm (US N/15) crochet hook, which made it really fast to make.

Making Up >

  • Stitch the side seams of the bag – I used a simple mattress stitch, collecting a stitch on one side, then threading my needle into a stitch on the other side, continuing to do that for each side seam.
  • The bag strap – Loop the rings through the bag clips, then feed one end of the bag strap through one ring.
  • Stitch it into place and make sure you have the right side facing outwards.
  • Do the same to the other end of the strap.
  • Place the clips into open stitches on either side of the bag.
  • Alternatively, you could attach a leather strap.
  • The decoration – I added 3 thread tassels to the side of the bag for some color on a piece of leather.
  • You can add whatever you want here, pom poms, keyrings, large tassels, etc. I found the tassels in a local craft shop.

    1. Hello! yes one skein was all I used. I had a little bit extra left, so if you stick to the pattern one should be fine. If you wanted to add more tassels or a longer strap, then you would need more. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy making the bag! 🙂
