Crochet Pokeball Bag (Drawstring Style)

Here’s a cute crochet Pokeball Bag that can hold a number of surprises! I made it in a drawstring style, so that it can close just by pulling the cords tightly together.

This free Pokeball Bag crochet pattern is a fun and quick project to make.

I first created this crochet Pokeball Bag for a specific function. I had a friend who wanted a cozy for the GoPro and wanted it to look unique. And I thought, “Hmmm… a Pokeball style cozy might just do the trick!”

Of course that’s not all the crochet Pokeball Bag can function as. Off the top of my head, I can think of so many fun uses for it.

The most obvious one of all is it can just work as a regular Pokeball that captures Pokemon! You may remember my other Pokeball Pod pattern that can open and close to reveal the Pokemon inside.

This Pokeball bag pattern has a similar concept except it opens and closes at the top and also the drawstring cords can work as a handle to carry around the Pokeball as well.

Here is Psyduck amigurumi who likes to use it as a sleeping bag.

And of course, it’s only Psyduck who will get stuck halfway through a Pokeball 😂

You can carry all sorts of items in it, including Pokemon playing cards.

If you’re a fan of Dungeons and Dragons, it can make a great dice holder too!

And if you like rock climbing, weight lifting, or gymnastics, I think this would make an awesome chalk bag as well! Just put a ball of chalk inside. It would definitely make an awesome conversation piece!

Anyways, hope you have fun with your crochet Pokeball Bag and let me know what you’re using it for! I’d also love to see your projects so make sure you tag me on Instagram @ami_amour.

CORD (make 2)
With white yarn
Ch 60, fasten off.

1. Weave to hide and cut all tail ends for the Pokeball Bag.

2. Fold a piece of legal size paper in half, and then half again. Place this insert into the bag. This will act as our protective layer as we sew the button on top of the Pokeball bag.

3. Sew the Pokeball Circle onto the bag. For best placement, check out this part of my video tutorial.

4. Weave in the Cord drawstring through the windows. (See photos below)
Use one cord and weave in and out until you come all the way around back to the beginning.Make the ends even. Tie a knot to secure the ends. Sew the end loops together as well.

5. Now do the same with the other drawstring cord but for the other side of the Pokeball bag. But you want the weaving to be opposite of the other previous cord. (For example: where the other weaves in, you will want to be weaving out.)

6. Your Pokeball Bag is ready for use! Tag me with your projects on Instagram @ami_amour.
