Today's free pattern is a cute little sling bag for your kids or yourself. Take out those leftover yarns that you have in your stash and pick up a suitable hook. I used sport weight yarn in one main color and 3 complementing colors along with a 3.5 mm crochet hook.

Finishing

Sew a button to the front of the bag. Join yarn to the back of the bag right behind the button and make a loop using any number of chains long enough to go around the button. Join with a sl st to the same st where you joined the yarn.

To make the strap, make any number of chains and work sl st in each ch across. Cut off yarn and weave in the ends. Sew both the ends to the inner sides of the bag.
