Everyone needs a small bag just for those basics: phone, wallet, lip gloss, the works.

This small satchel is just the bag for the job. The yarn is thicker, so the bag will be nice and sturdy.

5. Summer Shoulder Crochet Purse

This crochet bag is tiny but mighty.

All of the little features such as the tassels and beading at the bottom, the fabric interior, and the gold hardware make this little guy look far from handmade.

Prepare for compliments galore!

6. Lace Panel Crossbody Crochet Purse

If your style is more girly and romantic, this just might be the purse for you.

The bag has a regular single crochet border with a panel of lacey shell stitches in the middle. It’s beautiful, elegant, and easy to make.

7. Raised Floral Crochet Purse

The embossed, floral look of this crochet purse is very different from other crochet bags.

It’s simple yet sophisticated and will go with any outfit. It’s a handbag, so you don’t have to worry about it being too bulky to carry around.

The pattern is available on the Bonita Patterns Etsy shop here.

8. Sea Glass Shoulder Bag

In the same vein as the Lace Panel bag is this little shoulder bag, named for its light blue, sea glass-esque color.

Friends will have a hard time believing this is handmade with its leather strap, gold hardware, and fabric interior.

9. Simple Crochet Tote

This easy crochet tote has a bit more of a sturdier appearance than standard crochet market bags.

 10. Coastal Crochet Tote Bag

This minimalistic tote bag is so simple but so effective in emanating that “coastal grandma” look that’ll be everywhere this summer.

The bottom is a muted baby blue, the top is a cream color, and the whole thing is finished off with a tassel at the base of the handle.

The pattern is available on Etsy here.

11. Milano Crochet Shoulder Bag

This bag has small elements that pull together for an overall stylish purse you could carry through the streets of Italy (hence the Milano title).

The bag is worked flat instead of in a round, so it’s a bit easier for newer crocheters.

The gold clasp in the middle pulls the whole bag together for a high-fashion look.

The pattern is available on Etsy here.

12. Rainbow Bauble Crochet Bag

If your style is a bit quirkier (like mine), this little rainbow back is right up your alley.

Each arch is a different color of baubles that end up creating a rainbow. I love that it’s quirky and fun, but not so out there that I could only wear it with one or two outfits.

I’d feel like the cutest girl in school with this bag (not to mention my preschoolers would love it.)

The pattern is available on Etsy here.

13. The Halina Crochet Purse

This cute, 90s-sequel bag is perfect for the Y2K style resurgence happening right now.

The bag is adjustable and has two different straps that can be tied however you wish. This project would be so much fun to make and it’s definitely one of a kind.

The pattern is available on Etsy here.

14. Boho Summer Crochet Bucket Bag

Bucket bags may be everywhere, but ensure you stand out from the crowd by sporting this boho version of the trend.

The leather strap and gold hardware tie it all together for an adorable summer accessory.

The pattern is available on Mimo Tokyta’s Etsy shop here.

 15. The Seafarer Crochet Bag

This crochet bag screams Northeast coast to me. The blended grey yarn reminds me of the foggy mornings watching the waves. It’s just big enough to carry what you need without being too big.

The pattern is available on Etsy here.
