18 Free Crochet Bag Patterns To Try Today

I have finally done it.  I have finally created the post that I have always wanted to make about crochet bags.

It took lots of research and lots of searching but I have a collection of 18 crochet bags that are ready for you to make today.
All of these patterns are completely and 100% free.  
None of the patterns require you to subscribe to a website or a newsletter to view them.  
They are either provided on the designer's own website or as a download from Ravelry. For limitations on selling items used from these patterns, please check the patterns themselves.  
I try to only share items that can be sold at craft fairs and such but I might have missed someone's disclaimers in creating this massive list of free crochet patterns.
Check out all of these great patterns and if you like what you see, make sure to tell the designer.  We love hearing from the artists that use our patterns.  

1.  Meladora's Wavy Stitch Draw Bag

The texture of this bag is simply awesome.  The stitches look complicated even though they really aren't.  There is also a video tutorial for this bag that outlines its creation for both left and right-handed crocheters.

2.  Suzie's Stuff Cash and Cards Wallet

Crochet a simple wallet to zazz up your wardrobe.  I love how you can really pick any color you want.  I suggest working in cotton so that it is durable and will handle everyday use.  I also suggest using something machine washable, money is so dirty.


3.  Repeat Crafter Me: Crochet Clutch

Need something cute but not "too fancy" to take for an evening out.  This clutch fits that perfect. Change the yarn to something with glitter and maybe a different applique to customize this clutch for day and night.

Crochet a drawstring bag for storage, shopping, sporting goods, hobby supplies so and so many other things. This makes a lovely bag for teenagers too!

This bag is super cute.  It is on my to-do list.  When I have it finished I definitely plan on sharing it with everyone and reviewing the pattern.  I think it's the perfect size to make sure you can carry all your necessities discreetly.  From the picture, it does not look like it would require a lining but I am not completely sure.

The crocodile stitch is super popular right now and this bag is ridiculously cute.  This bag is covered in crocodile stitch crochet and looks absolutely stunning.  The great thing is that the bag pattern is available as a tutorial on youtube.

It would be a top 20 list without an entry from Moogly blog.  It is one of my favorite crochet blogs and I happened to stumble across this super cute tote bag.  The crochet bag looks a little complicated and difficult to crochet but there are tons of pictures and diagrams included with the pattern to help you along in crocheting this super adorable Moroccan Market Tote Bag.

This tote bag is uber cute and would make the perfect shopping bag.  It starts at the bottom with a crochet flower, then it is worked upward with a nifty mesh.  I totally see myself carrying this to the farmer's market or the flea market.

I am in love with this idea.  I hate carrying a purse and a wallet sometimes.  There are just certain situations where all you want on you are your car keys.  This little pouch makes it easy for you to carry your money and chapstick in a convenient place.  

15.  Hiking Hydration Unit

Short hikes don't require a backpack but you may want to have some water on you for hydration.  Use this sling to carry your water bottle and keep your hands free for stuff like climbing.

Feel like a dragon protecting her precious egg with this super cute book bag.  The crocodile stitch gives this crochet book bag the texture of scales.  A perfect accessory for that Game of Thrones party or fan.
