Crochet Easy Boho Festival Bag
Hi everyone, today I will show you how to crochet an easy Boho Festival Bag.
I hope you are well and that you have had a lot of crochet time. Crochet is my own personal therapy. To be honest, I love the feeling of creating something out of a beautiful and colourful yarn! This Summer project really puts me in the mood to go to a Festival, or just go out for a simple ice cream with my little baby boy.
The video tutorial can be found on my Youtube channel: Crochet The Boho Bag Video Tutorial
This week I am bringing to you a lovely and very easy to make Boho Festival Coachella inspired bag. You know how much I love those hippy vibes. I seem to be obsessed with cotton yarn at the moment, and this bag was made using the stunning Wendy Supreme Luxury DK yarn, which is so lovely.
Pink is my favourite colour, and I know this bag will be so convenient and easy to use this Spring/Summer. You can use any 100% cotton in DK/size 3 light yarn, as it will work just the same with this pattern. It’s the versatility of this crochet pattern that I love the most! Maybe I will even crochet this bag in a few different shades as it is so easy to wear with all of my outfits.
I hope you enjoy making this project, let me know in the comments below, and I will be bringing to you a lot more Coachella Boho vibes projects very soon.
An easy pattern
I love creating Boho, festival inspired bags and crochet garments, and you will find a lot of these patterns on my blog. Indeed, I love to use up my cotton yarn stash to make myself some cute, bohemian accessories, which I can use day to day with most of my closet pieces. This crochet Easy Boho Festival Bag is super cute too!
I have crocheted quite a few 70’s inspired headbands, and plan on releasing more crochet bag patterns and video tutorials over the Summer. Recently I have also purchased some beautiful buttons online, that I cannot wait to use on my cotton pieces, so watch this space.
Lining your crochet Easy Boho Festival bag
I have also lined this bag with beautiful cotton fabric, which is very easy to do. To be honest, I even hand-stitched it, so it definitely is something you can do without a sewing machine if you don’t have one. Lining a crochet bag really adds to not only it’s longevity, but really makes the whole project look more put together. The video on how to line a crochet bag is also available, and it’s very easy and quick to do.

Sew project together:
Place both front and back panel on top of each other. Make 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.
If using a rope, sew into project with darning needle and thread.
Make sure you sew the strap very securely onto project.
Fasten off, tidy up all loose ends and line bag if you wish.
