Crochet Easter Treat Bag (ESC)

This crochet Easter treat bag is worked up in one of my favorite crochet stitches: the extended single crochet. It works up quick and easy, and you have the option to add a bit of fun fur to make it extra special for your little girl. And when she is done with the candy, she can use it as a little purse or treasure bag.

This treat bag features three rounds of fun fur to give it an extra touch of pretty for the little girls to enjoy.

This adorable crochet bag is rather small, which makes it ideal for use as a candy bag or as a little girl’s purse. However, if you like, you can always do more rounds to make it taller and use it as a cell phone purse.

This crochet candy bag is shown here without any fun fur. The ribbing at the top is all you need for a cute little bag for girls.

The pattern does not allow much room for a drawstring, which is ideal for treat bags. But, with a little patience, you can insert a small zipper at the top to keep it closed nicely.

Personally, I prefer the fun fur, but you can always omit it if you don’t have it on hand or if you simply choose not to use it. The ribbing at the top of the bag looks great either way.
