Crochet Mini Purse Bag Free Pattern

My nieces are always excited to receive my crochet gifts. So, after selecting their favorite colors, I made them two crochet mini purse bags.

This Crochet Mini Purse Bag is a perfect idea when searching for quick projects, especially those using less yarn. I made each of the bags with less than one skein!

Pin this post for later.

The mini purse is part of the spring/Easter crochet patterns. The other projects are also available here.
