These tiny crochet treasure bags are perfect for using little bits of yarn left over from other projects. You can also change up the size by using a different weight of yarn or making the base or the sides of the bag bigger.
The samples use a single color for the body with the contrasting yarn used at the top of the bag and for the drawstring, but you can make it even scrappier by changing colors every couple of rounds.
These cute crochet bags are perfect for holding little rocks or shells from a nature walk, tiny gifts, and other special treasures.
One great thing about this crochet project is that it's super quick to work up. If you enjoy crocheting projects that are quick and easy, check out 90 amazing “Done in a Day” crochet patterns here.

Crab Stitch Edging:
This rnd is worked in the opposite direction from normal, to make the working yarn twist around the sts. So if you are right-handed, you will be working from left to right. If you are left-handed, you will be working from right to left. Do not turn your work, simply work each single crochet in the previous st instead of the next one.
