Are you as obsessed with unicorns as I am? Or maybe you have a unicorn fan that you know? Then this is exactly the crochet purse pattern you need in your life! Introducing the Unicorn Purse, the latest free crochet pattern on my blog that is a simple and adorable crochet unicorn bag that’s super adorable. It makes an awesome trick or treat bag, crochet purse for girls, and a cute accessory to add to your wardrobe!
My inspiration for this cute crochet unicorn purse came from my love of unicorns. If something has a unicorn on it then I want it. It’s pretty much guaranteed that I love anything unicorn! So I tried to infuse some of my love of unicorns into this bag design. I wanted it to be a crochet purse that could be used for all sorts of occasions: as a trick or treat bag, easter basket, fun accessory, or crochet purse for young girls. I absolutely love how it turned out!
To make this unicorn purse, I tried to have the construction be as simple as possible. The main part of the purse is crocheted in the round using single crochet stitches, and then the other pieces are crocheted separately and added on after. The only technique you need to know how to do is the magic circle, otherwise this pattern uses basic crocheting in the round techniques.
I also have a discounted premium ad free PDF version of this pattern available for just $2! It includes special photo tutorials that I don’t have here, and it also includes the written pattern. All of it is available at a discount as a special service I have for all of my readers! The PDF is now available for purchase in my Etsy and Ravelry stores. Click here to get your copy!
To make this adorable crochet unicorn bag, I used some amazing t-shirt yarn that the Etsy shop Knitznpurlz sent me. If you’ve never tried t-shirt yarn you totally need to grab a skein of hers! She makes all of it herself out of the softest cotton fabric, and it has such amazing stitch definition and durability. I love how sturdy it makes this bag, and it doesn’t even stretch when I put something in it! She also has a ton of amazing colors to offer along with some patterned/variegated yarns. Click here to check out her shop! If you don’t want to use this yarn, you could also substitute it with any weight 6 super bulky yarn. For ease and durability, I highly recommend this one, but you can also use something from your stash.

Using worsted weight yarn and 6mm hook.
Ch 26, starting in second ch from hook, sc 1, *sk 1, dc 5 in next ch, sk 1, sc 1, repeat from * to end of chain.
I made 3 flowers, each a different color of worsted weight yarn.
Cut 30 strands of yarn in the same colors you used for you flowers. I made each of my strands a foot and a half long. Then tie in a knot and attach to the back of the bag.
This strap is super customizable to be whatever length and thickness you want it to. You can have it be just one strand of chain stitches, or do two strands that are twisted together. You can also do a row of sc stitches to make it even thicker. Here’s how I made my strap:
Ch 50, fasten off, then sew each end to the sides of the purse.
