Sometimes you’d rather not lug around a huge bag when you’re out and about, right? Or maybe you need to store some small items like crochet notions without misplacing them. No matter why you need a smaller bag, this is the perfect round-up for you! Let’s take a look at some of the cutest mini crochet bag patterns—and the best part is, they’re all free!

1. Tiny Tote Bag

Free pattern by Little World of Whimsy here!

This little tote is perfect for holding airpods, other earbuds, or really anything small! The bag is super cute and the pattern is easy to follow. All you’ll need is knowledge of basic stitches plus the foundation chain, and there’s a video tutorial for that technique. The pattern calls for sport weight yarn, but you could also use any other weight to adjust the size of your tote.

2. Earbud Holder

Free pattern by A Crocheted Simplicity here!

Here’s another option for holding your earbuds. This one is a fun circular pattern with a design that evokes flowers and the sun. It would also be perfect for holding a round measuring tape for all your crafting projects! The pattern uses easy stitches plus an alternative double crochet, special join, and invisible join. There are linked tutorials for each of those stitches, so this is the perfect project for beginners who are ready to learn new skills.

3. Mini Puffy Dice Bag

This pattern is great for tabletop gamers who need to store a set of dice for Dungeons & Dragons or any other RPG adventures. Of course, the bag is so cute that you might want to make it even if you’re not a gamer! The size is adjustable, so it can hold whatever you want. The drawstring bag gets its fun texture from the puff stitch, and the pattern includes instructions for both the 3hdc puff and the 4hdc puff.

4. Magnificent Mini Pouch

This adorable pouch would work well as a wallet or for holding crochet notions. I absolutely love when bags have a button closure, because you can choose whatever button best matches your personality. Plus, this is an amazing beginner project, since it only uses chaining and single crochet.

This mini bag is such a fun pyramid shape. It’s a great choice for tabletop RPG players to store their dice, since it looks just like a D4.

This bag, also designed by MotherBunch Crochet, is a similar style but slightly smaller. Like the first string bag, it uses simple stitches and would be great as a doll accessory. The best part? It works up in just half an hour!

8. Mini Rustic Drawstring Net

Looking for a bag that can hold your produce? This is the perfect choice! It’s another string bag, but slightly larger than the previous two. The delicate, detailed look is achieved with simple stitches (just make sure you know how to work in the back loop only), and the drawstring feature means your produce or other items will stay nice and secure.

9. Mini Bunny Bag

This super-cute mini bunny bag is perfect for springtime and Easter, or just for anyone who loves bunnies! The designer has a great idea: you can even use it as an Easter basket or to collect Easter eggs. The pattern calls for worsted-weight yarn and easy stitches, so it’s a good beginner project.

This adorable mini bag pattern is also great for spring, especially if you choose pastel yarns like the designer did. The pattern comes in the form of a video tutorial with written instructions on the screen, so it’s perfect for all types of learners. The video is especially helpful for the step that gives the bag its woven look: alternating stitches between two rows.
