Crochet Flower Granny Square Bag Free Pattern: The Inspiration

I love crochet bags so much! Indeed, crochet bags are perfect for Summer and festival season. A few weeks ago, I made this romantic Boho bag which is perfect for the beach or a festival. Cotton yarn is perfect for bags and small accessories as it is so solid and creates quite tight stitches.

Last year, I crocheted one of my favorite bags to date: this Boho Sunburst Granny Square is perfect if you are looking for a similar projects. Indeed, tote bags are so great to have for day to day activities, and to use as shopping bags. I love lining my crochet bags, and I will link below the video I filmed to explain how to do this:

If you are looking for a smaller bag, you can check out this easy Boho bag from a few years ago. This has been a very popular project over the past few years. If you enjoy this project, don’t forget to have a look at this lovely feminine bag which is very dainty and small too.

Crochet Flower Granny Square Bag Free Pattern: The Yarn

For this project, I used one of my favorite yarns which is Drops Muskat yarn. This yarn is 100% cotton and is also mercerized. This is a great yarn for smaller accessories and I love it so much! I used this yarn many times.

I used this yarn for this delicate and feminine purse. Also, I made this classic and traditional French beret and this Cottagecore inspired bandana. These projects are perfect for Summer. This mercerized yarn is perfect to crochet these delicate and lovely accessories. Accessories are perfect for making gifts for loved ones too.

Pattern begins here

For this project, we will start by making 13 individual flower Granny Squares in the three different colors indicated above, and as explained step by step in this pattern. Once all these squares are crocheted, we will be sewing them together to create the initial shape of the bag.

We will then be sewing these squares together as explained step by step in this pattern. We will then crochet the two identical straps directly onto the assembled bag.

Create bag shape and sewing

Place your 13 squares on a flat surface as follows:

Place your flower squares like so
Place your flower squares like so

With tapestry needle and yarn, start sewing all your squares together using the mattress stitch.

Once you have sewed all your squares together, fold your project over as seen in photographs below (follow steps 1 and 2):

Fold project over
Fold project over (step 1)
Fold project over
Fold project over (step 2)

Once you have folded the bag as demonstrated in the above photographs, finish sewing the corresponding squares together, leaving the two top squares free of any sewing for the bag opening.

Fasten off and tidy up all loose ends.

Crocheting your straps onto the bag

Once all the parts of your bag have been sewed together, make sure your bag is still inside out so as to start crocheting your straps directly onto the bag.

We will start crocheting the first strap of the bag on either the front or back panel which are of course identical (inside out).

Attach yarn to one of the β€œV”s at the top of the bag.

Ch 70, and making sure you do not twist the chain, attach it to the other side of the bag. Attach the chain to the top of the second β€œV” on that panel (exactly opposite the starting point of chain).

Row 2: Ch 2 (=HDC), HDC into next ch until eor.

Once you reach the other side of the chain, slip stitch to the cluster of 3 DC at starting point.

Fasten off.

If needed, go back into the base of each strap with a piece of yarn and tapestry needle to make sure it is very well secured to the project.

Repeat the same process on the other side of the bag/back panel for the second strap.

Fasten off, and tidy up all loose ends.

Turn your project inside out, so that the right side is now facing out.
