I’ve been experimenting with a lot of different brand tags over the last couple years, since I first drew the KnitcroAddict logo. I finally found some that I really like, and I’m happy to finally test out the finished tag on this netted crochet drawstring pouch.
This drawstring pouch is really beginner friendly and easy. It probably took me a couple of hours to make one start to finish. If you’re selling finished product, this is a great one to have in your inventory, particularly with the branding.
What’s the point of a drawstring pouch with holes in it? It’s perfect for a travel size laundry tote bag, carrying your beach wear (so sand doesn’t collect inside) or maybe just a change of clothes for the gym.
The uses for this netted drawstring pouch is only limited by our imaginations.
If you’re looking to dive into some more handbag projects and ideas, check out this Crochet Drawstring Pom Pom Bag tutorial for something simple. If you want to try your hand at a little more challenging bag, I recommend this 4 Seasons Crochet Purse pattern.
You can find the leather logo tabs on Etsy . I love supporting other Etsy sellers as well.
Hope you all enjoy, happy crocheting once again!

Drawstring ( Make 2 )
Note : For the drawstring, you can make it as long as you like, just make more ch when you start. Make sure both pieces are the same length.
ch 121, 1 sl st into second ch from hook and each ch across, cut the yarn and weave all the ends
Thread the drawstring into the bag at the side in round 18. 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. Make sure that the drawstrings are at the sides of the bag, then tie a knot in the ends.
