So Easy Crochet Make-up Bag

August 2, 2017

My favorite cotton yarn is I Love This Cotton! Yarn from Hobby Lobby. I had some left over and needed a small project to use it up, so I made this really easy make-up bag!

I wanted something pretty on my counter to hold my make-up, and that’s exactly what I got! This bag is purely for aesthetic purposes. It easily holds my things while sitting on the counter, but it’s definitely not made to be used as a handbag or clutch.

PATTERN

Materials
Worsted weight cotton or acrylic yarn in 2 colors (I used I Love this Cotton! Yarn in Spark and Rosey)
5.0 mm hook
Yarn needle
Scissors
Button

Level
Easy – must be familiar with basic crochet stitches and techniques

Pattern Notes & Stitches to Know
sl st – slip stitch
ch – chain
hdc – half double crochet
hdc blo – half double crochet in the back loop only (instead of inserting your hook through both loops at the top of the stitch, insert hook through only the back loop – this will give a ribbed look)

Do not fasten off, weave in all the other ends.

Fold up, wrong side out, about 18 stitches. Using a sc, sew the side closed. Fasten off and do the same for the other side.

Turn right side out so the seam is on the inside. Fasten off, weave in all your ends. Add your button to the front.
