Crochet Satchel Pattern for Kids

This crochet bag is an easy project that works up very quickly and would make the perfect gift for your little one. Having their own bag means your child has a place for all the treasures they find while you are out exploring together.

Give them a little pocket money to hang on to before your next trip to the grocery store or farmers market. I have always found crossbody bags like this a convenient way to be hands free when shopping.

I love this super soft Folklore yarn. This medium weight acrylic yarn comes in a wide variety of colors, which makes personalizing this project a cinch. Simply grab your favorite color and start crocheting!

This free pattern is ideal for beginner crocheters. It uses basic crochet stitches and a repeating stitch pattern.

Step One – Complete the crochet pattern. Your crochet piece will be approximately 18″ long. Fold the bottom six inches up and, using a yarn needle and extra strands of yarn, sew the sides together.

Step Two – Attach the strap to the satchel. Use yarn and the yarn needle to sew the strap to the sides of the satchel.

Step Three – Weave in any loose ends of yarn.

Step Four – (Optional) Add embellishments like leather, clasps, and charms.

I loved personalizing this bag by weaving a few strips of leather into the crochet stitches. Adding a clip-on lanyard with a variety of charms made this a hit with my guy too!

He has already been toting this around the playground and filling it with all sorts of treasures. I hope that you like this easy crochet bag pattern too!

Variations:

  • As you can see in the photo, I created a flap for this bag. When sewing your sides up, don’t fold it completely in half. You may find that using a stitch marker or two helps keep things even.
  • Instead of one solid color, try different colors for the bag and strap. You could even make it striped.
  • Try single crochet stitches, instead of double. Make sure the finished length is the same though.
  • Line the entire bag with a fun, coordinating fabric.
  • Easily make this beautiful bag adult-sized. Just add stitches to the width and extra rows to make it larger.

Tips and Tricks:

  • When choosing crochet projects, always check the skill level needed, to be sure it’s a good fit for you.
  • Crochet hook size can make a real difference in the finished size of your crochet items. If you tend to crochet quite tightly, it may be beneficial to go up a size. If your crochet stitches tend to be loose, go down a size.
  • Only have worsted weight yarn, but the pattern calls for bulky yarn? No problem! Just use two strands of worsted weight yarn, held together.
  • For easy washing, choose a cotton yarn.
