Crochet Mini Tote Gift Bag

Hi friends,

Do you like to give gift cards or cash for Christmas? This Crochet Mini Tote Gift Bag is the perfect size to tuck cards and cash in along with some yummy chocolate or Christmas candy. 🙂 It’s also great for small gifts like earrings or other jewelry. Or maybe tuck a little note pad, pen, and chocolates inside for a sweet friend gift. 🎁

I used I Love This Yarn in White and Red with an H/5mm hook to stitch up my Mini Tote Gift Bags. The finished bag measures about 4.75 by 5.5 inches. You’ll find the pattern below along with a link to a free PDF for easy printing.
