Large Crochet Plush Bag - Free Crochet Pattern



This is a crochet pattern to make this adorable plush bag - a larger version of the original bag. The bag itself is no-sew, as it' s crocheted all in one piece! The optional flower has a small amount of sewing to attach to the bag.

You can find the original (smaller) version of the bag here.

This bag (using Hobbii Baby Snuggle) measures at about 30cm x 30cm (12 inch x 12 inch) including the small handles. If you use thicker yarn and a bigger hook, it would be larger.
