Make an adorable octopus crossbody bag with this crochet pattern! This bag has a zipper closure and can hold your phone, keys, wallet, chapstick, and whatever other small things you need. Change up the facial features and colors to make a unique octopus of your own! Or copy mine cuz it’s cute as heck. This guy would also work as a belt bag.

Pattern level: Intermediate. The crochet itself is simple, but there are a lot of parts to sew on, so a higher experience level is recommended. However, I think a beginner could tackle this with hard work! This project uses optional single crochet foundation rows or foundation chains, but I highly suggest you make the sc foundation rows (you can learn how on youtube).
