Create a fun crochet bag with a charm that matches your personality!

This little charm bag is so versatile. Sometimes I call it a fairy bag and fill it with pretty stones. Other times I fill it with sweets. Change up the colors and charm to personalize this gift for a multitude of occasions. The crochet chain handles tighten up the bag to keep any hidden gems safely inside.

Materials

Directions

This project doesn’t have a gauge because the bag size is up to you. After choosing your yarn pick a hook size that gives you good stitch definition without squeezing the stitches too tight. For my charm bag I used Sport weight yarn and a size E hook.

RND 1

CH 5, join into a ring

CH 3 (the CH 3 will count as your first stitch for each round)

Work 11 DC in ring

Join round with SL ST to top of CH 3 (each round will end with this type of join)

12  STS

RND 2

CH 3, DC into first stitch, then 2 DC into every stitch

24  STS

RND 3

CH 3, *DC around row, 2 DC into every second stitch*

36 STS

Continue in DC for eight more rounds

HANDLE ROUND

This round is more “open” so handles can be woven through

CH 4, *DC one stitch, CH1 skip one stitch*, the CH1 “floats” over the skipped stitch

RUFFLE

Tie on eyelash yarn to current yarn. I find eyelash yarn too thin to use solely as trim. Combining it with the current yarn gives the ruffle more structure.

RND 1

CH 3, 2 DC into one stitch, *DC, 2DC until end of row*

RND 2

CH 3, 2 DC into one stitch, *DC, 2DC until end of row*

charm-5

Bind Off

Weave in ends

HANDLES

*Crochet a 12” crochet chain. Weave handle end into the “Handle Row” under the ruffle. Tie ends together and weave in ends into chain.*

*Make 2*

About Stephanie

Hello everyone. I’m Stephanie and I’m so happy to be the Yarn and Needlework contributor for Think Crafts. A friend taught me to crochet back in 2000 and I’ve been hooked on fiber crafts ever since. Knitting soon followed, then spinning, needle felting and sewing joined the team. I love making my own clothes and home accessories. Making clothes from thrift store finds is one of my passions. Creating fun monsters out of sparkly yarn is my current obsession. I blog about my crafty creations and belly dancing at Twillight Kallisti.
