This is a free crochet pattern for a Blossom Tote Bag. This pretty Crochet Tote Bag is made with Premier Yarn and has leather straps and a blossom iron-on.
Are you looking for a stylish new tote bag that’s also practical? Do you want to learn how to make one? With this article, you’ll learn exactly how to make a crochet tote bag pattern with leather straps and add a beautiful blossom iron-on to make it unique. And the iron-on is glued on since an iron can destroy the yarn by melting it.
Not only will you save money by using your own creative skills, but you’ll also have the satisfaction of knowing that you made something that’s as fashionable as it is functional.
We’ll walk you through the step-by-step process of crafting the tote bag from start to finish. We’ll show you the materials you need, the techniques you’ll use, and the skills you’ll learn, so you can walk away with a beautiful and unique tote bag of your own design.
To make it absolutely unnecessary to add a lining, the bag is designed with the waistcoat stitch. Perfect!
Furthermore, the bag bottom is made AFTER the bag was crocheted and it allows you to have the freedom to make the bag bottom width as thick or thin as you want.
Let’s get started!

Free Written Pattern for the Blossom Crochet Tote Bag
First, you’ll crochet the bag, then sew the bottom, before adding the rings, straps, and optionally the iron-ons.
Tote Bag Body
R1: ch 56, starting from the 2nd ch from the hook, 1 sc per ch, then turn and work on the opposite side of the chain, 1 sc per ch, then work in continuous rounds (use a stitch marker)
R2-74: 1 wst per st
Tote Bag Bottom
Now flip the bag inside out, create triangles (width of about 4 inches), sew a line across to make the triangles, and then sew the triangles to the bag bottom which creates a nice flat bag bottom.
Optionally, wrap felt around a piece of plastic canvas and hot glue the pieces together, and lay it on the bottom of the bag to keep the bag bottom firm.
Optionally, hot glue the blossom iron-on to the bag.
Sew the rings to the bag evenly and attach the leather straps.
