Are you a "Sex and the City" type of girl who stares in the store window at the beautiful handbags from Louis Vuitton, Prada, Gucci and Michael Kors, but you cry on the inside because you know you can't afford it? Yep, I'm that type of girl, and as the tears stream down my face I realize how silly it is just for a name. It's like a light bulb goes on every time because that's the moment I realize I can make my own DIY bags. When learning how to crochet bags I smile from ear to ear knowing that not only am I saving my money, but I'm also putting in the time and effort to get exactly what I want. There's nothing more satisfying than starting and finishing a project you handmade yourself, which is why we're presenting you with this brand new eBook full of all kinds of DIY bags!

How to Make Crochet Bags: 11 Fantastic DIY Bags
Crochet bag patterns like purses are great for carrying all your needs. Typically these purses are bigger than a clutch and we all know that as a girl we have a lot to carry around. These purses are nice, too because the straps are long enough to wear over the shoulder or across the body for convenience. When you learn how to make crochet bags these are the ones you're going to want.
The Mesmerizing Messenger Bag is truly remarkable! Crochet bag patterns like this are glorified in the crochet colors that you choose, but the pattern itself is just stunning. This handmade bag is stylish and roomy and can hold all your belongings. A nice added touch is the optional strap adjuster, so be sure you check this one out!
The Pretty Purple Purse is worked in a rich purple color to die for. This is a pretty bag pattern that you can treat yourself with. It's a casual looking bag that uses the puff stitch giving it that nice texture. The strap is long enough to be worn as a cross-body bag. If you're looking for simplicity, then this is your go-to.
The Perfect Crochet Purse is just that: perfect! This bag was popular in our newsletters last month and we can see why. The size is just right, the colors are deep and bold, and has a shorter strap with a smaller bag portion so you can still fit the essentials. Being a parent, we know it's not easy lugging around a child and a big bag full of goodies, so reduce the size with this cute bag.
The Itty Bitty Purse is one of the most popular patterns with our readers. Little girls will love carrying around this pouch, but adults can use it, too. There's a flower applique on the bag, but you can also adorn it with a butterfly, a bow, a bird or just about anything you wish. It's the perfect little accessory she needs to be just like mommy.
DIY clutch bags are much like envelop bags in that you can carry them in your hand or under your arm. These patterns are great when you don't want to bring many items with you. I personally like a clutch for concerts or sporting events, and let's not forget weddings! When I don't need the usual, a clutch is just the perfect item.
The Crochet Clutch is a cute crochet design because you can embellish it with just about anything. This particular diy clutch bag is embellished with two buttons, but you can also add flowers, sequins or appliques. This is a simple crochet pattern that can be worked up quickly in single crochet; the pattern consists of only 32 rows.
When learning how to make crochet bags, diy totes are my number one favorite. They're easy to "tote" around and can carry the essentials whether you have a lot or a little. When I need to run out of the house in a hurry, a tote is an easy bag to pick up on-the-go.
The Trendy Tweed Tote is an easy crocheted bag to work up. Red Heart recommends using two strands of yarn at once for added stability and it'll give it an interesting tweed-like texture. The colors complement each other nicely, but as usual you can use any colors you wish. You might also consider crocheting this design in solids.
The Two Hour Tote is so eye catching you will find yourself drooling over it. The pale blue or aqua color is stunning, but when completed with a contrasting embellishment, it really pops. As the name suggests, this diy tote can be worked up in just two hours. You can use it as an everyday bag or a bag to hold a few skeins of yarn. This one is a keeper!
