Item details

This crochet pattern includes instructions for small and mini gift bags in two size variations, several color schemes, and several different tie options. Each one works up quickly and is fun to make.

The gift bags shown are done in Christmas Holiday colors but you can enjoy creating your own color scheme for any occasion, holiday, décor, or season, as well as school and team colors for any alumni or sports fan on your gift list.

The hand crocheted gift bag is reusable and adds a thoughtful, personal touch to any gift for Christmas, Hanukkah, Birthdays, Mothers’ Day, Fathers’ Day, Housewarmings, Hostess Gifts, Graduations, Weddings, Showers, and so many other occasions.

The mini version is perfect for jewelry while the small version can accommodate larger items, such as small electronics, DVDs and much more!

NOTE: This is a pattern, not a finished item. If you are looking for a finished item, I sell these gift bags in other listings in my Etsy shop. Look in the Gift Bag section for the available selection.

Skill Level: Easy – some experience helpful.

Yarn: Lion Brand, Vanna’s Choice. For the Small Three Color Gift Bags and the Mini Striped Gift Bags, 1 skein each of three colors: Cranberry (Color #180), Olive(#174), and Beige(# 123).
