Flower Bitty Boho Bag Modification

Happy Friday!!! Today I have a lovely flowery Bitty Boho Bag Modification for you guys! One of the things I love about the Bitty Boho Bag is how easy it is to modify the pattern for all different kinds of styles and looks! You can make a mod for every season, holiday, event, basically, anything you could want I’m sure there’s a way to do it with the Bitty Boho Bag!

Since its May and I’m feeling some serious spring vibes, I thought a flower Bitty Boho Bag modification would be perfect! If you have a spring craft show coming up, this would be a great project for building up stock quickly! Plus with all the different colors and designs they will be a great eye catcher piece! They would also be great gifts for any kiddos with spring birthdays coming up!!

I am going to show you 3 fun flower ideas you can make and sew on to the front of your bitty boho bag. The only thing that changes about the pattern itself is you make the front piece of the bag in all Single Crochet stitches instead of the Bobble stitches. If you do not have the Bitty Boho Bag pattern yet you can purchase it HERE as an instant download!

Here’s what you will need
– A finished Bitty Boho Bag (without the bobble stitches)
– Yarn ( these flowers don’t take much)
– G Hook- Mine is a mermaid tail hook from Harper Baby Shop
– Scissors
– Tapestry Needle

Rosetta


I love this rosetta flower design. It is so simple to make and turns out beautiful! You can sew these onto nearly anything! But for today we will just stick to a Bitty Boho Bag ????

This is made working in the round so you may need a stitch marker or scrap piece of yarn.
All increase stitches in the Rosetta flower are Single Crochet Increases.

Stitches Used
SC- Single Crochet
BLO- Back loop only- Put your stitch into the back loop only instead of under both loops like normal.
INC- Increase- Two stitches in the same space
*- To Be Repeated
SS- Slip Stitch
CH- Chain

Start by making a magic circle and CH 1.

Round 1: SC 8 into the magic circle. Put your stitch marker into the 8th SC so you will know where your next round needs to end. (8)

Round 2: SC INC into each of the 8 stitches from round one BLO. Move your stitch marker to the last SC (16)

Round 3: *SC, INC* 8 times around BLO. Move your stitch marker to the last SC (24)

Round 4: *SC, SC, INC* 8 times around BLO. Move your stitch marker to the last SC (32)

Round 5: *SC, SC, SC, INC* 8 times around BLO (40)

CH 1 and turn your work.

Now we are going to go back into all the stitches we just made with a SC. The first 40 SC will be under both loops (these are the 40 SC from round 5) then after that, you will place your SC into the exposed Front Loops from rounds 1-4.

*SC, SC, SC, SC, INC* repeat until you get back to the very center of the rose. SS into the last exposed Front Loop and tie off leaving a long tail for attaching to the bag.

Sew in your first tail you made (around the magic circle). Pull your long tail down into the center of your rose and out the bottom, then thread your tapestry needle onto your long tail.

Line your rosetta up onto your Bitty Boho Bag then begin attaching by pushing your tapestry needle down into the body of the flower and into the bag, then back up from the inside of the bag and out the flower. Just follow the spiral until the entire flower is secure. You’re all finished!!

Ruffle Flower 


This ruffle flower may be my favorite crochet flower pattern! I really need to put one of these cuties on a Crafty Cactus Pillow! It adds a lot of dimension and texture to Bitty Boho Bags!

Stitches Used
SC- Single Crochet
HDC- Half Double Crochet
DC- Double Crochet
BLO- Back loop only- Put your stitch into the back loop only instead of under both loops like normal.
INC- Increase- Two stitches in the same space
*- To Be Repeated
SS- Slip Stitch
CH- Chain

Start by making a magic circle and CH 1.

Row 1: HDC 10 times into the magic circle. Join back into your first HDC. CH 1. (10)

Row 2: HDC INC in every stitch around BLO. Join back into your first HDC. CH 1. (20)

Row 3: *HDC, INC* 10 times BLO. Join back into your first HDC. CH 1. (30)

Row 4: *SC, SC, SC INC* 10 times BLO. Join back into your first SC. (40) Tie off.

Insert your hook into one of the exposed Front Loops from Row 1. CH 2 and DC 3 into the same stitch.

DC 4 times into every exposed front loop stitch from Row 1. Join back into the first DC and tie off.

Insert your hook into one of the exposed Front Loops from Row 3. CH 2 and DC 3 into the same stitch.

DC 4 times into every exposed front loop stitch from Row 3. Join back into the first DC and tie off.

Sew in all your tails and you’re finished! Line your newly completed flower up on the front of your boho bag and begin attaching it similarly to the way you attached your rosetta. Just go in and out of the flower (kinda at the bottom of the ruffle stitches) until its nice and secure.

Bhooked’s Popcorn Flower

I have always been a sucker for this flower design! I use it on everything! I’ve also seen a couple of you guys use this flower on your bitty boho bags already (yay creativity!) so I thought I better include it in this post since its so pretty!

You can find the written instructions here at www.bhookedcrochet.com. Or, if you like videos, you can watch Brittany crochet a popcorn stitch flower in her YouTube video. For the bitty boho bag, I find its best to stop after the second row of popcorn stitches.

Once you complete your flower (leaving a long tail for sewing), line it up on your bag so you know where you need to attach it. I put a folded piece of paper in my bitty boho bag to prevent me from accidentally sewing the front and back pieces together while attaching the flower.

For this flower I though a whip stitch would be the fastest, cleanest option. Just insert your tapestry needle into the body of the back then poke your needle back up through one of your stitches in the flower. Pull your yarn through the stitch and go directly back down into the bag (your yarn kinda goes around the edge of your flower), poke back up into one of your stitches and continue around until your entire flower is attached.

Now you’re all finished!

    So are these flowers on the back of the bag and there’s still bobbles on the other side or are these bobble free bags with flowers added ? 🌻
