Bunny crochet drawstring bag pattern

For this drawstring crochet bag pattern, I have decided to make it a bunny theme and in yellow. For everyone who crochets for Easter or anyone who simply wants a cute little crochet bag to keep valuables, especially yarn.

My bunny crochet drawstring bucket bag has seen more use since completed mainly as a bag for my yarns and work in progress. I am curious, what would you keep in yours?

This pattern would make a cute summer drawstring bucket bag and would pair well this a crochet summer hat.

The bunny crochet bucket bag was added to my bunny collections.

About the bunny drawstring bucket bag design

The beautiful crochet drawstring bag is the 3rd in my bunny-related crochet designs. This crochet bucket bag was designed to go along with my other easter crochet patterns. I thought to use yellow and white to create an eye-catching crochet bag.

Construction of this crochet bucket bag pattern

To make this bag pattern as easy as possible, it has been designed in a way to reduce sewing.

The bag is made in one piece and in the round from the base upwards, as such, you can customize your bag to your preference. After this, eyelets are made, through which the rope (handle) can be passed.

The bunny ears are then crocheted and joined to the bag with a slip stitch. The attached pom are optional, I felt it would complete the bunny look of this bag.
