Guy’s Drawstring Bag Free Crochet Pattern

In today’s post you will find the Guy’s Drawstring Bag Free Crochet Pattern.  Have you ever wondered what those guys in your life do with the little things they collect??  

My pattern testers were testing another drawstring bag design for another event and I was kind of shocked when one of my testers told me that her son wanted her to make a drawstring bag for him!  Then, another of my testers told me her hubby and son uses them all the time!

With Father’s Day right around the corner, this would make the perfect gift for him to store his collectibles.  This crochet pattern doesn’t have to made just for the guys, it can be made for the girls as well!

As you can see by my testers’ versions below there are great uses and colors you can use when you give a gift using this bag.  Thank you Kami Jones, Kristen Temple Taylor, and Stacy Secoy for showing the different uses!!
