Animal Crossing Bell Bag Crochet Pattern

Hi everyone!

I have a small update. Not in line with the typical writing stuff, but it’s a fun update all the same.

With the major release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, both my husband and I have been having a blast at home playing together. So, I figured now would be the perfect time to share this cute crochet pattern of a bell bag!

I was motivated to make my own after missing out on a preorder bonus. Honestly, I think it worked out for because this one has so much more charm and can be repurposed as a dice bag or small toiletries bag. And with the pandemic, there’s nothing to do except stay in and study or play games. So, this was a nice change of pace from the “typical” home activities.

It’s a very simple pattern, and any beginner should be able to follow along.

Another finished item.

It probably takes 2 hours tops to finish, and it’s a great gift for any Animal Crossing fan. I churned out a bunch of them while watching some TV. I stuffed mine full of candy and amiibo cards to give around to my friends, and it was such a hit with them.

Definitely share how your creations turn out, I can’t wait to see them. If you have any questions or need help, comment below and I’ll do my best to answer!

    You should give instructions on how to attach the star

      Hi Roxanne!

      I just sewed it on using yarn and yarn needle. 🙂 No special technique, I’m self taught so some of my methods aren’t the most refined or appropriate hah.
