16 Fun, Free Patterns for Crochet Totes, Evening Bags and Purses
Welcome back to my series of free crochet patterns! This time, I found for you some really cool patterns to make all kinds of different purses and bags. We girls like our purses, right?
Since warmer weather is hopefully just around the corner so you may not be in the mood to knit or crochet hats and sweaters. After a while, you get tired of those. But, a cute little evening bag or purse is always a good idea.
Plus, most purses or totes are a much quicker project than a big, bulky sweater. Some of these little bags would only take an hour or two to complete.
I really love this wide selection of different free patterns which includes a market bag made from plarn (plastic yarn) and even super cute, little purses for kids.
Speaking of market bags, check out these 15 Market Bag Patterns. And, if you are looking for other free patterns, see my 21 Cool Sites for Free Crochet Patterns

What is the best yarn for crochet bags?
Honestly, it depends on the type of bag you want to make. If you are crocheting a large tote, then you may want to use a cotton yarn which is durable, sturdy and slightly elastic.
If you prefer to use a wool yarn for your larger bag, take a look at some wool blends such as this Chunky Melody. For small evening bags or clutches, you can pretty much use any type of yarn.
