Crochet summer bag

I went into town, picked up some yummy looking cotton yarn and got to work creating my bag. I didn’t use a pattern for this but just sort of made it up as I went along. This is not my first crochet bag project, I should maybe put my head together and start writing patterns for my bags, and in the end, I was thrilled with how it turned out. What do you think?  

This crochet tote is not only great for the beach but perfect to grab before you head out to the farmer’s market, grocery store or out window shopping. My neighbor’s daughter loved this bag and now wants one for herself… expect to see a modified kids version soon.

These crochet bags are really quick and easy to make and also make a great little gift. The tote crochet pattern may look complicated upon first glance but you’ll soon see that you’re just repeating the same steps and alternating with beads. It’s done with the double crochet stitch  which is a favorite of mine since it seems to work up so quickly.

It took me two days to complete the beach bag crochet project and I would say I that I crochet for at least 1 hour a day and at a medium to fast pace. The finished size of the tote was 12″ wide by 12″ high.


My name is Appelles Kireru, and I’m the Proprietor of The Crafter's Agency. I taught myself how to crochet in 2014, and I have been hooked ever since. In 2020, I finally conquered my fear of knitting, and I haven’t looked back since. But crochet is still my favorite! I also love to sew small projects. I make Artisan soap, design and make jewelry from time to time. I do my fair share of cooking and love to bake, too.
