T-Shirt Yarn Crossbody Bag + FREE pattern.

So easy that you can have your crocheted crosboddy in a day!

I do not like bags too much but I love crossbody bags. They are so easy to use and so pretty! I bring today this easy pattern for you to have your crochetted bag within a day.


T-Shirt Crossbody Bag

The truth is that you can make it so fast because of the T-Shirt yarn, and I like that fact.

For this crochet pattern, you can use leftovers of yarn from other projects that you have at home. I also used a recycled chain handle from an old bag I had at home.

I leave you with the pattern that, as I mentioned before, is easy to follow:

Project Level: Beginner


  • T-shirt Yarn: 50m/ 300 gr approx., Col. Grey
  • Crochet Hook:  size J- 10 (U.S.)/(6 mm) (or size needed to obtain gauge)
  • Chain handle
  • 2 D-Ring
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Stitch Marker


In a 4″ x 4″ swatch, with a crochet hook of 6 mm and in single crochet (sc) = 9 stitches x 11 rows

Adjust hook size if necessary to obtain correct gauge.

Final Measurements:

Final measurements of the crossbody bags are: 8.30″ x 5.10″


  • The bag is crocheted in the round.
  • Join always with slip stitch.
  • The first ch of each row is a turning chain, does not count a s a stitch.
  • I used a recycled chain handled, you can buy one or recycle it.
