It’s getting close to the holidays, and you know what that means? Trick or treating, big family meals together and sharing gifts with loved ones.
I don’t think this Crochet Drawstring Pom Pom bag will help you with your post turkey coma, but it can help with the trick or treating and the gifting.
It’s not only beginner friendly, it’s also a very quick project. It turned out to be super versatile in how you could wear it and use it.
It can be carried clutch style, worn over the shoulder, and even worn as a drawstring back pack. I love it so much, I’ve already made 3 as gifts and 2 for me 🙂
Some one you know will love it as a gift, and you’ll love making it. Did I mention it will make the perfect trick or treat bag for the kids?
Enjoy, share the love and happy crocheting!

Drawstring ( Make 2 )
Color B : ch 130, sl st into second ch from hook and each ch across ( I recommend inserting hook into the back bump of the ch ). Cut the yarn ( Check picture below )
Pom Pom ( Make 2 )
For the pom pom I used two colors. If you don’t know how to make a pom pom, here’s the video tutorial ( Check picture below )
Thread the drawstring into the bag at any point in round 26. Weave the drawstring through each loop all the way around the bag. We will repeat the same with the second drawstring starting from the opposite side so there are drawstrings placed evenly on both sides of the bag.
Tie the ends together and add the pom pom into both ends, weave all the ends ( Check picture below )
