This week's roundup is full of beautiful bags, purses, and pouches. Whether you're ready for something new for yourself or looking for something to make for a friend, you're sure to find something in this list of twenty-one free patterns that's just right for you! Pin, share, and enjoy. 
  1. Rainbow Happy Fun Pouch by Moogly. I can't believe how many friends in other parts of the country are still experiencing winter-like weather. This little bag might be the perfect way to brighten up your day. 
  2. Sling Bag Pattern by Yuli Handmade. This bag is perfect for days at the mall or the zoo. Decorate it with brightly colored flowers and it's sure to make a statement. 
  3. Granny Stripe Boutique Bag by Tangled Happy. This is the first bag I ever crocheted. I've since made several as gifts. My nieces love carrying theirs. The little girls in your life will be thrilled with one, too.
  4. Granny Square Bag by Kat Goldin. The other day I read a reference to granny squares; the woman referred to them as out of date and "your grandmother's crochet." I couldn't disagree with her more. I think a granny square can be perfect when done the right way with the right colors. This bag is a perfect example. 
  5. Celebrating Spring Bag by DROPS Design. Love this adorable cross-body bag! Don't let the price at the top of the linked page scare you. That's the price for yarn.

  7. Bella Ruffled Purse by Crochet Dreamz. You can't go wrong with ruffles, can you? And crocheted ruffles? I'm not sure there's anything better. I know two little girls who would fight over a purse like this one. 
  8. Casual Shoulder Bag by Erin Elkins. This casual bag is perfect for spring and summer. Leave it as is or embellish for an extra pop of color. 
  9. Beach Bag for Momma by Stitch 11. This bag is a necessity for summer trips to the beach and the pool. It'll stretch to fit your towels, sunscreen, and more. These would make an awesome gift for your beach-loving friends!
  10. Fancy Market Bag by Cre8tion Crochet. Tired of those eco-friendly bags you can purchase in the checkout line? If your answer is yes, this bag is far from boring. It's fancy stitch will make it fun to go to the store or farmer's market. 
  11. Bobble-icious Bag by Speckless. This quick little bag is perfect for a small child. I have made one of these before, and they're simple and beautiful. Perfect for your daughter's next birthday party. 
  12. Crochet Flower Purse by Meladora's Creations. This blooming bag is perfect for spring. You'll need to line it, though, or your change will be all over the sidewalk.

Fishbowl Crochet Hat Pattern {newborn through toddler}

Goldfish Hat Crochet Pattern

You may have seen the fishbowl hat I posted on Saturday. Thanks so much for all the sweet compliments I've received on it. Due to how cute everyone seems to think it is, I have added three more sizes so you can make this adorable little hat for more kiddos in your life. 

If you'd like to make your own, it's easy. The most difficult part will be sewing on all those adorable buttons. 

Materials: 
- Worsted Weight Yarn (turquoise or blue and white) - I used 100% cotton
- small amounts of green and yellow or gold worsted weight yarn
Favorite Findings Buttons (434 - Blue Ocean)
- thread for sewing on buttons
- tapestry needle

Notes: 
Chains do NOT count as the first stitch. 

Make an adorable fishbowl hat from this FREE! crochet pattern. Creative and unique, it's sure to get oohs and ahs from all who see it!

Crochet Fishbow Hat Step-by-step

Finishing Touches:
Goldfish Appliqué
Using the hook specified above and yellow/gold yarn, ch 7 (photo 1).
Row 1: sc in the second ch from hook. hdc in the next, dc in the next 2 stitches, hdc in the next, sc in the next. ch 3. sc in the second ch from hook, hdc in the next. sl st in the same stitch. (Photo 2)
Row 2: ch 3. sc in the second ch from hook, hdc in the next. Sl st in the BACK of the first stitch on the opposite side of the fish (photo 3). hdc in the next stitch, dc in the next 2 stitches, hdc in the next stitch, sc in the next. ch 1, sl st to the first stitch of the previous row. Cut yarn and leave a long tail for sewing on the hat.

Grass Appliqué (see photo 4):
Using green yarn the hook specified above, ch 7 (9 for 1-3 year size).
sl st in the second ch from the hook. sc in the next 5 (7) stitches. Do not cut yarn.
ch 10 (12). sl st in the second ch from hook. sc in the next 8 (10) stitches. Do not cut yarn.
ch 6 (8). sl st in the second ch from hok. sc in the next 4 (6) stitches. Cut yarn leaving a long tail for sewing on the hat. When you're finished you should have three "blades of grass" as shown in photo 4 above.

Braids:
For each side of the hat, cut 9 strands of yarn (I do three strands of 3 different colors) approximately 40 inches long. Fold them in half and pull the "loop" through the hat. Pull the loose ends through the loop to attach the yarn. Separate each color to make three strands. Then braid and knot at the end to secure. Cut yarn to make the ends even.

Once you have your hat made and the grass and goldfish finished, you'll need to sew on your buttons. I suggest placing them on the hat first to see how you're going to want them arranged. After you've sewn on the buttons, use a tapestry needle to sew on the grass and fish. I used a french knot to make the eye on the fish and the bubbles coming up from his mouth. This is a great tutorial on how to make French knots on crocheted or knitted items.
