Crochet Mini Gift Bag

Hi friends,

Is it hot where you are? We are sizzlin’ here in Alabama!! But of course it is July so…

☀️🔥🥵

I’ve got another Christmas in July post for you today. These cute Mini Gift Bags are perfect for gift cards or cash – with a little extra room for some yummy chocolates! 🍫 They measure about 4.25 by 4.25 inches not including the handle, so they are also great for small gifts. 🎁

Here’s the pattern for making these fun little gift bags. They work up super fast using worsted weight (4) yarn and an H/5mm hook. I used Yarn Bee Soft & Sleek yarn in White, Red, Kale, and Mustard to stitch up my bags – any worsted weight (4) yarn will work.

Fasten off and weave in ends.

I’ve included a link below to a free PDF for easy printing…

Of course, you can also make these bags in just one color – which would make them go even faster and you’ll have fewer ends to weave in. 😉

Be sure to save to your Pinterest Crochet Board using the button below so it will be handy when you are ready to get started.

What colors will you use to stitch up your Mini Crochet Gift Bags?

Happy Stitching!
