I don’t know what it is about crochet bags and purses, but there is something about them that just draws me in. I have made at least a half a dozen bags of various types over the last few years and I’m still drawn to new handbag patterns all the time. And I have found event more to add to my list and inspire you! There are so many fun and cute ideas out there that will be sure to delight you!

How sweet is this Cherry Pie Purse Crochet Pattern from The Stitching Shoppe? This cottagecore-inspired purse measures about 10″ across when finished and is suited for a beginner-intermediate level crocheter. Make yourself a fun and custom bag that is sure to spark conversations!
I love the simplicity of this Crochet Orange Bag Pattern from Lilys Handmade Store! It looks like the leaf acts as an anchor for the drawstring, which is a genius idea. And it’s basically just a little sack, perfect for your cell phone, wallet, and keys when you don’t have pockets.
Ok, though, but this Crochet Duck Bag Pattern from Bebblepuff? How can you not? The design for this adorable and unique crochet duck purse include instructions for two pockets and a cotton lining. It calls for size 6 (bulky) yarn and an 8 mm crochet hook, which means it will work up quickly and make a nice sturdy handbag.
Ok, when I first saw the Blossom Bag crochet pattern from Bookworm Gardens I thought it was a fried egg purse. I suppose if you made the petals more irregularly shaped, you could make this bag look more like a fried egg, but it is still a really fun flower purse! There are lots of sample photos (tester photos!) in the listing, so you can see what it looks like in different colours to help you choose.
If you have been around here a while, you will know it’s no secret that I love lemons! I love the look of them (yellow is my favourite colour!) and I love the flavour of them! I love a lemon wedge squeezed in my ice water. And I love this Citrusly?? Granny Square Tote Bag crochet pattern from Cozy Dome Crafts. This citrus granny squre tote bag is great for beginners and can be modified with differnt colours to create a variety of different citrus fruits. Limes? Oranges? Grapefruit? So many options!
How great is this Black Cat Tote Bag Crochet pattern from Patterns Crochet Store? I can just see this bag adding a touch of whimsy to a little black dress and would make such a fun gift for a cat lover! That’s one of the great things about bags: they make great gifts because you don’t have to worry about fit!
Ok, maybe you saw my last post about mushrooms, but I didn’t include this Crossbody Toadstool Bag Crochet Pattern from HELLO Happy. This super whimsical mushroom bag has a zipper closure and is made with a small hook so it can remain unlined and you won’t lose your little things through the crochet fabric.
This Crossbody Froggy Bag Crochet Pattern also from HELLO Happy has a similar fit as the mushroom bag and calls for a 9 inch zipper. It would make a nice alternative to the mushroom bag, but still with a whimsical woodland theme.
The Chaotic Strawberry has this Amigurumi Strawberry Drawstring Bag Crochet Pattern available for purchase and immediate download. This pattern is probably best for an advanced beginner or intermediate crocheter. The design of this purse allows you to open the drawstring without having to adjust the strap since the strap is separate from the drawstring opening. I love the bundle of leaves on the top of the strawberry closure: makes for a very authentic looking strawberry!
The Kawaii Acorn Bag Crochet Pattern from Sweet Home Deco Estudio is another woodland-inspired bag pattern that would make the perfect whimsical gift for anyone! I love the sweet little oak leaves adorning the top of the bag. The beauty of making your own bag like this is that you can make it any length you want!
The Spring Folding Shopping Bags Crochet Pattern from one and two company is an adorable and functional shopping bag pattern. I don’t know about your city, but my city has recently imposed a ban on plastic bags, so it is all the more important that we bring our own reusable shopping bags with us. And what better way to do so than with an adorable crocheted bag that folds into an adorable little accessory? With this one pattern you can make a cute bunny, funny chicken, or a colourful flower!
For a slightly smaller bag, you could make the Collapsable Fruit Bag Crochet Pattern from McScottys. This pattern features five different versions including options to make citrus fruit (lemon, lime or orange), dragonfruit, and watermelon. Handy for stashing in your purse to corral additional purchased for a little bit extra storage.
I hope you found a cute bag to make from one of these adorable crochet patterns. Grab one today or pin it for later!
