We need gift bags for all sorts of occasions.

I cannot believe that I’ve never thought to make a crochet gift bag before! Such a lightbulb moment for me haha!

They are great to have for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Halloween, Christmas, and for holding just about any kind of small gift. Β For me, the best part about making your own gift bag is that it is so easy to customize for any occasion.

Got a princess themed birthday party coming up? Use bright, colorful yarn in girly colors that matches the princess theme.

Got a kid that has a Halloween party at school? Use a combination of black, orange, and white to create all kinds of Halloween gift bags.

You see where I’m going with this.

Depending on the colors chosen and the theme of the bag, the recipient may even choose to repurpose it at home. How lovely would that be? πŸ™‚ Neutral colors go with any home decor and they just might to decide to use it to hold small toiletries in the bathroom or to hold small office supplies on their desk.

Or, ya know, they could just decide to reuse it to hold someone else’s gift. No matter what, it’s a win!

Alright, let’s get started! You’ve got parties to attend and gifts that need bagging…enough of my chit-chat!

Just like many of my patterns, this one is easy to customize for any occasion. You can take a more advanced approach and give it your own unique twist by adding a crochet applique…or use different colors to match different holiday themes and birthday party colors. Get creative with it!

Easy Gift Bag Crochet Pattern

Skill Level:

Easy

Materials:
Gauge:

14 sts = 4″ (10cm); 11 rows = 4″ (10cm) in hdc using a size 4.5mm crochet hook and worsted weight yarn

Size of Completed Project:

Small: 3.0″ x 1.5″ x 3.0″
Medium: 4.5″ x 2.0″ x 4.0″

Abbreviations and Stitches Used:

Beg – beginning
BLOΒ  – back loop only
Ch – chain
Hdc – half double crochet
Rep or *() * – repeat
Sc – single crochet
Sl st – slip stitch
St(s) – stitch(es)

Special Notes:
  • Terminology in U.S. terms.
  • Ch 1 at beginning of row does NOT count as a st.
  • The bag is made from the bottom-up,Β meaning you will make the bottom part of the bag in rows first then attach your yarn and continue in rounds until you reach the desired height.
  • To give the bottom of the bag strength, you will be joining two separate panels before continuing on in rounds.
  • Please note that the pattern includes an optional color change to give the bag a color-block look. Each bag takes less color to make the bottom of the bag than the top, however, exact yardage of each color was not measured. (Yardage amounts listed in Materials section are based on one color.)

Easy Gift Bag Crochet Pattern:

Small Bag (3.0″ x 1.5″ x 3.0″)

Bottom Panels (Make 2)

Ch 9.

Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and across. (8)

Row 2. Ch 1. Turn. Sc across. (8)

Row 3. Ch 1. Turn. Sc across. (8)

Fasten off. -Make 2-

Join Bottom Panels Together with a Round of Single Crochet

Round 1: Holding both panels together, insert hook into the first scΒ st of both panels and attach yarn with a sl st. (Be sure to go under all 4 loops.) Ch 1. Place 2 sc in the 1st st, sc in the next 6 sts, then place 2 sc in the last st. Rounding the corner, place 1 sc into the side of the panels, then turn the next corner by placing 2 sc in the 1st st along opposite edge. Sc in the next 6 sts, then place 2 sc in the last st. Rounding the last corner, place 1 sc into the last side of the panels and join with a sl st to the 1st sc st of the round. (22) You are now working upwards in rounds to form the body of the bag.

Round 2: Ch 1. Hdc BLO around. Join with a sl st to the 1st hdc. (22)

Round 3: Ch 1. Hdc in each st around.* Join with a sl st to the 1st hdc. (22) *Change colors on the last yarn over of the last st in Round 3.

Round 4: Ch 1. Hdc in each st around. Join with a sl st to the 1st hdc. (22)

Round 5 – 9: Repeat Round 4. (22)

Round 10: Sl st in each st around. Join with a sl st to the 1st st. (22)

Handles

Please feel free to make the handles using any type of stitch you prefer. For this bag, I crocheted two 4″ Romanian cords, centered them on each side of the bag, then sewed the handles to the top of the bag with my tapestry needle. I like that the cord almost has a rope-look to it and created a nice, sturdy handle.

If you would like to make simple, sturdy handles out of rows of sc stitches, I would recommend the following:

Use a smaller hook (3.0 – 4.0mm) and keep the handles narrow.

For example:Β 
Row 1: Chain 3. Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in next st. (2)
Row 2: Ch 1. Turn. Sc in each st. (2)
Repeat the last row until handle reaches the desired length (appx 4″ for size Sm). Fasten off. Make 2.
Using your tapestry needle, stitch the handles to the top of your bag leaving appx 3 sts in the center (between the ends of each individual handle).
