Doll Size Beach Bag - free crochet pattern

Doll Size Beach Bag - free crochet pattern

Hi everyone, at the moment I am making lots of doll size clothes and accessories. Mainly Barbie size dolls. My photos are not the best and may be difficult to see how tiny they are. 

I found this easy to follow tutorial on YouTube for a tiny bag keyring to crochet. So I thought that this bag would be a great Barbie size Beach Bag. Quick and Easy to make.

There is no pattern with the tutorial so I have written it down to share with all of you. Please share photos of your finished bags.

Easy to Crochet a Girls Bolero

Easy To Crochet a Girls Bolero


I found this cute Bolero pattern on FaveCrafts which states it is a Patons pattern. Even though this is an easy item to make, the pattern is flawed. I have found that it has missing instructions and sections without endings. It was fine until I got to the Sleeves, Edging and Construction sections.

I did search online to try to find the correct pattern but this was the only website I could find it on. 

So, I decided to go ahead and make this cute Bolero for a special little girl in my life. I will give you the instructions that I think are missing plus provide photos.

This pattern covers girls sizes 2yrs to 10yrs. 

Here is the link for the main pattern Click HERE
Below (click on link below this line) are photos of the Bolero I made and corrects to what I found.
