Crochet Barbie Cross Over Body Bag



Use leftover scrap yarn probably around 10 – 30 yards depending upon type of yarn and size of hook used.  In my finished design, I used a Size C (2.75mm) hook and a Fine (2) cotton yarn.


Chain 13

Make 2 single crochets (sc) in 2nd chain from hook.

Continue by making 10 sc.

In last chain make 2 sc in that stitch

Continuing around make 10 sc down the back side of your starting chain.  Slip stitch (sl st) join in last chain.


Chain 1

2 sc in each of the next 2 sc stitches.

Crochet 30 chains or as many as you would like, smaller chain (15 chains) for a handbag or more chains for a cross body tote (45 chains).  Remove hook and insert into 8th or 9th stitch from beginning from outside edge of bag and pull loop through.  Slip hook through back loop of same stitch and last chain of strap (3 loops on hook) yarn over (y0) and pull through all three loops.  Crochet along chain making sc heading back to beginning side.  Remove hook and from the outside of purse, insert hook through same loop and pull through, yo and pull through all loops on hook.


Continue around top edge of purse making 16 slip stitches and fasten off.  Decorate with a button, flower or just leave as is 🙂
