Crochet Drawstring Bag Pattern with Pom Poms

It’s getting close to the holidays, and you know what that means? Trick or treating, big family meals together and sharing gifts with loved ones. Which means you need a crochet bag pattern, and I just happen to have a crochet pom pom bag you’ll love.

I don’t think this Crochet Drawstring bag with pom poms will help you with your post turkey coma, but it can help with the trick or treating and the gifting.

This crochet pom pom bag is not only beginner friendly, it’s also a very quick project. It turned out to be super versatile in how you could wear it and use it.

I love that this crochet drawstring bag can be carried clutch style, worn over the shoulder, and even worn as a drawstring back pack. I love it so much, I’ve already made 3 as gifts and 2 for me 🙂

Some one you know will love a crochet pom pom bag as a gift, and you’ll love making it. Did I mention it will make the perfect trick or treat bag for the kids?

step by step photo tutorial for the crochet drawstring bag with pom poms, making the drawstring and the pom poms

Thread the drawstring into the bag at any point in round 26. Weave the drawstring through each loop all the way around the bag. We will repeat the same with the second drawstring starting from the opposite side so there are drawstrings placed evenly on both sides of the bag.

Tie the ends together and add the pom pom into both ends, weave all the ends ( Check picture below )

Thanks for getting back to me, but I’m looking for a pattern that doesn’t use a circle at all. I’m left handed and the circle is difficult for me. Thanks, again!!

Ahh, I see. Well, there are a lot of options. Maybe take a look through my YouTube channel, I have a lot of different bag tutorials there. My crochet netted drawstring bag pattern maybe? I'm not exactly sure what type of bag you want to make, but that one is somewhat similar. The crochet back pack and some of my handbag tutorials use a square panel for the bottom. Just some suggestions. Also, don't give up trying on the circle if it's difficult, keep trying and it'll click before you know it. Good luck Betsy!

Is there a pattern for the Pom Pom drawstring bag without using the magic circle? Thanks!!

Knitcroaddict

You can make 4 or 5 chains and then make a slip stitch into the first chain that you made to form a circle rather than using the magic circle. You're welcome, hope that helps!

How much less do I have to make for making a smaller bag?

I'm not sure what you mean by that.

I am crocheting this bag for a Christmas gift. For the HDC stitches, are you yarning "under" after inserting into the stitch and then yarning "over" to pull through all 3 loops? Does it matter? Love all of your patterns and videos! Thanks! Janet
