The inspiration behind this Crochet Boho Festival Bag

This very stylish bag is a great addition to any wardrobe. It is simple in it’s design, and very feminine. It has a clear Boho Festival vibe. You can wear it as a cross over bag, or simply over one shoulder. The versatility of this design is great.

The perfect Summer crochet project

Bohemian vibes are always very much present with a cotton crochet project. This Boho bag is no exception. I just love how cute and simple it is. It is very reminiscent of the 1960s era. I just love how dainty and feminine the shape of it is too. This era truly is one of my favourites. I am always enchanted when I create a pattern similar to that worn by women then. The floral wooden button adds a lot of flower power vibes to this bag too.

Behind the design

This Boho bag is very easy to crochet. The simple rectangular shape, and round flap look amazing, but are very beginner friendly. The front and back panels are identical. These are crocheted in a repeat of Half Double Crochets. They make for a tightly woven effect. The arc circle flap is later added. This flap looks extra feminine because of the shell edging detail, which is so pretty.

The floral button is later added to the front of the flap for decorative purposes. It really adds a lot of interest to an otherwise very simple design! This button is very simply sewed onto the flap with darning thread.

The yarn

The yarn used to crochet this Boho Festival Bag is 100% cotton. It is also a DK/light 3 yarn, which adds to the delicacy of this project. I love cotton yarn for Summer projects. It just adds so much vibrancy to anything. I used Sirdar Cotton DK, but you can use any other type of 100% light 3 yarn. This will not change the pattern at all.

The strap I made for this bag is also very easy to crochet. This is an added bonus, because it saves you buying rope for this project.

Line your Crochet Boho Festival Bag

You can line your crochet bag if you like. I made a video tutorial on how to line a crochet bag. You can find it here How to line a bag

This is a very easy to follow tutorial. It really is very simple, so please check it out. I love how lovely a crochet bag looks once lined. You only need a bit of scrap fabric and thread to line a bag. I sew my lining in by hand, so no need for a sewing machine. Let me know if you line your bags too!

Sew project together:

Place both front and back panel on top of each other, making sure they are symmetrically placed (this will be the inside of the bag as we will be turning it inside out to hide seam). Start sewing up one side, onto the bottom side, and then up the second side. Fasten off, tidy up loose ends.

Sew on the flap to the back panel: turn your project inside out, and secure your flap onto the back panel with the pins. Sew the flap onto back panel, fasten off and tidy up loose ends.

Place strap into bag, inside the side of each side of the project, making sure you have 4 cm (=1,5 inches) inside the bag.

If using the cotton strap from this pattern, sew into project with cotton yarn.

Make sure you sew the strap very securely onto project.

Sew your 30 mm button onto flap:

Measure the exact centre near the bottom edge of the flap. Place your button and sew it onto the flap with darning needle and thread.

Fasten off, tidy up all loose ends and line bag if you wish.
