Crochet Pattern: Half-Round Mini Bag

By Candace – 5 Comments
This mini bag is worked both in the round and flat with no sewing necessary for the body. It’s great for stashing a few bills and a tube of lip gloss or, if you install a zipper, loose change. Feel free to line the mini bag if desired, but you really don’t need to unless you plan to store really small objects in it. crochet_half_round_mini_bag

    What a great idea & it’s so cute it’s very kind of you to share your patterns with us. I don’t have a website, blog or any of those things. I just like to make things as gifts from patterns that are given so kindly by you & other sites.

    I am working on your Half round min bag.. it looks cute.
    I have a ??? for you …lol
    After I do the first 4 rows and start working on the next 3, do I put it together or just stitch and then sew together? I have tried both ways and would like your input. =)
    Looking forward to your reply.
    Happy hooking.

    This is an awesome pattern. I enjoy making this min-bag. I have
    made several. Sunday, I gave some away at church. I called
    it “The Widow’s Mite Coin Purse.” It’s an excellent place to keep
    ones offering or extra coins.

    Thank you for sharing a very special pattern, and thank you Rachel for
    posting it.

    Blessings 2 U!!!!!!!
