Free Crochet Project Bag Pattern
My latest free crochet pattern on the blog is the Quartz Project Bag. The Quartz Project Bag is an easy-level crochet pattern that’s entirely made out of moss stitch squares.
That’s right, this easy bag is constructed using only 4 crochet squares. Add in a bit of seaming, and you’ve got yourself the cutest handmade bag.
So if you love making granny squares and want to try your hand at making a granny square project, I think you’ll love this pattern!
It’s an easy beginner crochet bag pattern that works up in a few hours!
The Perfect Catch-All Bag Pattern
One thing that I love about this crochet bag pattern is that it’s the perfect catch-all bag. You know those times when you want to bring your crochet along, and then some other things, and before you know it your hands are full and you need to find a bigger bag.
Well, I’m happy to say this bag fits it all. It may look small, but with its neat construction, it actually fits a whole bunch of things.
So if you’re looking to crochet a bag that can fit all the things, definitely give this pattern a try or check out this mesh crochet bag pattern.
The construction of this bag pattern is pretty neat as you’re essentially making one big square and then seaming it together to form a bag.
You will first crochet your 4 moss stitch squares and then you will seam these squares together using the whipstitch method. Then you will fold the squares together, like an envelope, and seam the sides along the edge.
Once this is done, all that’s left to do is to sew on the handles. And that’s it! Pretty simple right?
I chose to work with Lion Brand Pound of Love yarn for this project and I love how it turned out! This was my first time working with this yarn, and I can’t recommend it enough. It’s a great worsted-weight yarn with tons of different color options. Plus, each ball contains 1,020 yards of yarn.
So you get a lot of yardage per ball! For this project, you will only need 1 ball of yarn. I chose to work with the color Quartz, which is a pretty soft pink color. I also think this bag would look good in the color white or grey.
Alright, let’s get started with our pattern.

Crochet Project Bag Construction
Once you have made all 4 squares and have worked in your ends, it’s time to put your project bag together.
Step 1: Grab the first two squares and lay them together side by side, then grab the other two squares and place them on the bottom of the first two squares.
Note – you’re creating one big square (photo down below for reference).
Step 2: Once you have all 4 squares laid out in the correct order, grab your darning needle and the yarn you used to make the squares.
Cut a strand of yarn twice the size of your square and start whipstitching the square together. So place your darning needle in the middle on the bottom and work your way to the top. Then place your darning needle in the middle on the right side and work your way to the left side.
Once you have seamed your 4 squares together, remove the darning needle, and work in any ends.
Step 3: Now that your squares are seamed together, it’s time to fold in the corners of the square.
Start by grabbing the top left corner and fold it in, then repeat this process for the last three corners.
Step 4: Once you have folded the corners, grab one corner again, and fold it 5 1/2″ inches outwards. Finally, place a stitch marker at the point in the middle where the folding ends.
Continue to repeat this process for the other three corners.
Step 5: Once you have folded each corner outwards, grab your darning needle with yarn, and whip stitch each side together.
At this point, your bag should be seamed together and you’re ready for the final step.
Step 6: Lastly, grab your bag handles and sew them onto the front corner of each point of the square.
Note – the photo down below indicates where to place your handles.
And that’s it, you’re finished!
