Free Patterns for Fabric Bags and Purses to Crochet

There are many different materials you can use for crocheting tote bags and purses. While you can certainly create lovely bags using yarn, some of the sturdiest bags are crocheted using fabric strips. Fabric bags aren't just utilitarian; they can also be stylish and beautiful too.

Pictured at left: A fabric crochet tote bag you can crochet from a free pattern posted on our website. The sample bag is made using batik fabrics in blues, greens, oranges and pinks. The look of the bag changes dramatically if you crochet it using other colors and prints; you could have so much fun experimenting with different fabrics for use in this pattern.

Fabric rugs can be crocheted in a variety of styles. The technique is well-suited for making country style rug designs, but you can do plenty of other styles too -- traditional, contemporary, and more.

Fabric strips crochet up nicely into thick, cushy coasters. As far as fabric crochet projects go, this one's reasonably quick and easy; it's a flower-shaped coaster with lots of style. If you'd rather use it as a trivet, it would work well for that purpose also.

Don't get me wrong, I love yarn. There's nothing quite like it. On the other hand, there are so many interesting things to crochet with -- why limit yourself? I enjoy crocheting without yarn, both for the creative challenge that it brings, and also for the money-saving aspects (in some cases.)
