Item details

This is a crochet pattern, not a finished item. This is a crochet pattern, not a finished item. This is a crochet pattern, not a finished item.

This is the original Totoro bag design! Many sellers have copied my design or purchased the pattern and are selling these bags without crediting me, but this is the pattern that started it all.

***There is a typo in the PDF: row 11 of the body should be hdc x 5, not 7***

Learn how to make this amazing Totoro drawstring mini backpack with this pattern! Also included is instructions on how to make a cross body bag instead of a backpack! You'll need to know the hdc, and how to increase and decrease with it.

When I say "mini" I mean mini! In the last 3 pictures, there is a water bottle in the bag. It's a perfect bag when all you need is some water, some cards & IDs, and your keys. It is NOT a full size purse or backpack.

You'll need ww yarn, and optionally a pompom maker, or the know how to make pompoms by hand. Also, some googly eyes for said pompoms.

This pattern will not teach you how to crochet in the round, or how to change colors, or how to sew pieces together, or how to embroider a mouth etc. You need to have a basic knowledge of these things already.

My patterns aren't for beginners, they're not going to teach you how to do stitches unless they are more complex than the basic sc, hdc, dc, tr etc. If you're a beginner looking for some cute & easy patterns, visit my blog for free ones!

All patterns are written in USA terms. If you don't understand something, all you need to do is ask! :) Otherwise, if you ask google, you'll probably get an answer right away.

This is a written pattern with no charts. The pattern has pictures and helpful notes.

You may sell whatever you make on a small scale, credit to HELLOhappy is required. Not only that, but please credit every person who has made patterns you are selling finished items of. :)
