Crochet Wedding Favour Bags – a free pattern

Following on from sharing with you my 7 top wedding crochet ideas I’m so pleased to be able to share with you a free pattern for some crochet wedding favour bags!

I crochet just about everything I could manage for our wedding but ran out of time to crochet nay favour bags. They were next on the list and so sorry to anyone who came to our wedding (they just didn’t get anything as a favour I’m afraid!).

If you’re more organised than me and have plenty of time to plan and make then a set of these really simple but sophisticated crochet wedding favour bags would be perfect for your (or someone else’s) big day!

Enjoy this free pattern for crochet wedding favour bags to make for any sophisticated wedding theme. Learn to crochet this linen thread mandala and hessian wedding favour bag to add to your handmade wedding.

About the Crochet Wedding Favour Bags

The delicate little bags are simply constructed by first crocheting a mandala in thread. You then need to make a small hessian pouch to sew half of the mandala on to. Fold the mandala over the top of the pouch, add a button and secure. It’s a really easy process that gives a stunning result.

The pattern is shared here for free in both UK and US terms for everyone to enjoy. If you’d like to, I’d love for you to sign up to my subscriber list so that I can share more crochet and free patterns with you.
