These super cute bags are really easy to make and are a nice quick little project to do. I made my girls some as a Christmas gift and filled them with makeup and toiletries. I decided to share this free cute crochet bag pattern with all you crochet crafters out there.
These bags would also make cute little play purses for the little ones in your life and can be made in any colour/colours you like. I will also leave the pattern for the simple bow at the bottom too in case you wish to add one to your bag.
