Little Scrappy Bag (free pattern)

These cute little satchels are so easy and quick to make! They only take about a half hour to crochet, and have only the most basic stitches. I made one for my son as a way to carry around those small toys that he needs to have with him at all times, and it was so fun that I spent the next two days making a whole bunch more. These little satchels are a great way to use up even really tiny scrap yarn balls, and are also a great way to experiment with color combos.

Note: This pattern is written so that the bag can be made as one continuous piece, without having to cut the yarn. If you want to change colors, do so at anytime with whatever method you prefer. As you work the pattern, the side that is facing you – the front – becomes the outside of the bag, so your stitches will all be facing the same way and will have that uniformity. 🙂
