Crochet Romantic Boho Bag Free Pattern: The Inspiration
As I stated above, I love crochet bags so much! The first bag I ever crocheted for my blog is this Boho Coachella inspired bag. This feminine bag is beautiful and perfect for festival season. The second bag I crocheted was this Boho bag with a sweet floral button. These bags are perfect to pop a small wallet and phone in.
I also crocheted this Sunburst Granny Square tote bag. This bag is wider and bigger, and is perfect to take shopping and going out and about. I love these different options of crocheted bags! If you want to crochet a romantic boho bag, don’t forget to check out this feminine tote bag.
Let me know if you love crocheting bags as much as I do!
Crochet Romantic Boho Bag Free Pattern: The Yarn
For this project, I used Drops Muskat yarn. This is one of my favorite yarns, and it is 100% cotton yarn. I have used this yarn many times. This yarn is of a light 3 weight, also known as DK weight yarn in the UK.
This yarn was used to crochet this beautiful French beret. I also crocheted this Cottagecore inspired bandana. This yarn is indeed perfect for accessories and smaller projects. I myself love using 100% cotton yarn to create bags and small accessories.
Last week I crocheted this delicate and feminine purse with this yarn too. I love little purses and bags, and I was so inspired to make a new crochet bag design with this yarn!

General notes concerning this pattern
For this project, we will be crocheting 2 different pieces to create bag.
First we will be crocheting a long rectangle that will be the front and back panels (once folded and sewed); then we will be making the half circle front flap.
Once all these items have been made, they will be assembled and sewed as explained below. Then the simple pearl/floral ornaments will be stitched to this project.
Pattern begins here
Create rectangle that will be the front and back panels once folded over and sewed
Make a slip knot, ch 41

Fasten off, leaving long tail for sewing.
Strap (If you are not using rope)
HDC into 3rd ch from hook and into each ch until eor, fasten off. Leave long tail for sewing into project.
Sewing project together
Place your rectangle on a flat surface, and fold one side over so as to create the front and back panels as seen in photograph below:
You will now be sewing the two sides of the project so as to create bag shape.
Firstly, using long tail and tapestry needle, start sewing one side up using the mattress stitch. Once you have reached the top of the project, tie a knot and fasten off, sewing in all loose ends.
Next, repeat the same thing on the other side (attach a loose piece of yarn for seaming as there is no long tail on that side of project).
Sew on the flap to the back panel
Secure your flap onto the back panel with sewing pins (optional). Sew the flap onto back panel, fasten off and tidy up loose ends.
Now turn your project inside out as we will now be sewing the strap onto the inside of the project (and you will want the right side facing to do this).
Place strap into bag, inside the side of each side of the project, making sure you have 4 cm (=1,5 inches) of strap inside the bag.
Sew into project with yarn, making sure you do not twist strap when sewing it onto both sides of project.
Make sure you sew the strap very securely onto project.
Fasten off and tidy up all loose ends.
Sew your ornaments onto the project
Now you will be sewing your button onto the front panel of the project with the darning thread and needle.
Place your three ornaments as seen in photograph below, making sure you are happy with their placements.
With darning thread and needle, secure each ornament one by one onto the flap of the bag.
Fasten off and tidy up all loose ends.
