Crochet Pumpkin Bag- Free Pattern

I have wanted to make some little treat bags for a while. I had the idea that they would be fun to give away with little candies or trinkets in them. I wanted the pattern to be very quick and easy so I could make several of them for teacher’s gifts, church leader’s gifts, etc. This pattern is a good scrap buster. It really does not take a lot of yarn to complete it. I used Orange and black for Halloween colors. Of course, you could swap the colors out for a Birthday Gift or other occasion.

For this pattern, I used Red Heart Super Saver Yarn. Red Heart is my go to yarn because I love how many colors that they have to choose from. It is affordable and I can also find it at the Walmart down the street.

Bottom of the Bag

(Handle- Make 1)

Ch 6

Row 1: Hdc in second chain from hook and across. At the end of the row, you will have 5 hdc. Ch 1, turn.

Row 2- 27: Hdc in each ch across. Ch 1 and turn on each row. At the end of row 27, finish off.

At the end, you will have 6 pieces. You will have front, back, 2 sides, the bottom and a handle. You are going to assemble the body of the bag first and then attach the handle.

I attached the bag by doing a sc join on the sides and the front of the bag. I used the orange yarn. For the handle, I just sc around the entire handle and then attached it to the bag. On the places where I was not joining, I crocheted around with sc.

Here is a picture of the joining:

How to join the bag

Row 1: Magic circle with 8 sc in the center. Join to first stitch and ch 1.

Row 2: 2 sc in each sc around. At the end you will have 16 sc. Join to first stitch. Ch 1.

Row 3: 2 sc in first stitch, 1 sc in next stitch. Repeat around. At the end you will have 24 sc. Join to first stitch.

Do one more sc where you will work the stitch in the stich below to create an indentation where the pumpkin top is. Finish off.

Row 1: Sc in firsts two stitches. Dc in next two stitches. Sc in last two stitches. Finish off.

Pumpkin Applique

Sew the pumpkin leaf onto the pumpkin and attach the applique to the bag.

Tuck in all of your ends and you are done!

So, what do you think? Would you make a crochet treat bag? I would love to hear!
