Learn how to crochet a Tapestry Crochet Bag — the Tapestry Crochet Chasing Diamonds Bag with this complete video tutorial. A free crochet pattern at Nana’s Crafty Home!
This bag is the perfect introduction to the Tapestry Crochet technique! Worked in just 2 colors and in a small section of the bag an adventurous beginning crocheter could tackle this project!

At approximately 8” tall x 13” wide (not including strap), this bag is the perfect size for an every day “go-to” bag for any time of the year!
The strap is the chevron stitch and is long enough to wear as a cross body bag (my favorite!). However, instructions are provided to resize strap, if desired.
Bag bottom is worked a little differently — row by row creating a rectangle rather than in the round — a great way to start any bag! With seamless rounds and no sewing (other than the straps) this bag is fun to work!
Made with Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton yarn* for strength, durability and functionality — my favorite go-to cotton for bags.
