Crochet Suzette Boho Bag Free Pattern

Hi everyone, this week I am bringing to you the Crochet Suzette Boho Bag (free pattern). This Coachella inspired boho bag is perfect in all seasons. It is crocheted using the Suzette stitch (also known as the Grit stitch). This sling bag is so lovely and can be crocheted by complete beginners too. It features a very cute shape and floral button too.

The video tutorial can be found here:

Crochet Suzette Boho Bag Free Pattern: The Inspiration

I love crocheting bags! Crochet bags are so convenient, and you can make them exactly the way you want them. I have already crocheted a few bags that I absolutely love. This boho festival bag is the first bag I ever created, and I still love it so much! This Coachella inspired bag featuring a shell stitch edging is also an all time favorite.

If you enjoy larger bags, you can check out this Sunburst Granny Square Bag which is also inspired by festival fashion. I love this design, but most of all I love the colors featured in this bright bag! If you enjoy more “wintery” style bags, this Victorian Drawstring Purse may be perfect for you. It is part of my Vintage Crochet Series.

This new design is very much a sling bag. It features a single long strap, giving this project a very Boho vibe. I also love the floral button, which really elevates the look of this otherwise simple piece.

Crochet Suzette Boho Bag Free Pattern: The Suzette Stitch

This crochet bag features the Suzette stitch. I absolutely love this stitch! I have used this stitch only once before, for The Heart Of Me Pompom Hat. Indeed, I crocheted this hat 3 years ago, so it was a real pleasure to use this stitch once again. I will definitely be using this stitch again in the near future!

This design is very simple. Indeed, the main part of the bag is crocheted as one large rectangle, which is later folded over and sewed. Then a triangle shaped flat is added to the bag; the long strap is crocheted and then sewed to the project.

Lastly, the floral button is sewed to the front of the bag. I love how simple and cute this bag is! I will be sewing a fabric lining into the bag, which is what I always do when for crochet bags.

Sewing project together

Create your front and back panels:

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.

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

Sew your straps into the bag
Sew your straps into the bag

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.

Sew your button onto the project

Now you will be sewing your button onto the front panel of the project (so that it can fasten the bag closed once you close it using the flap).

Lifting the flap up and out of the way, place your button onto the front panel so that when the flap is closed, it can be fastened through the bottom chain 2 center of the flap (which is the center chain 2 of the first row of the flap).

Making sure the button is nicely centered, use darning thread and needle to secure button onto project.

Fasten off and tidy up all loose ends.
