Fill them with a few candies, pencils, or other small gifts, and they're perfect for your kids and grandkids to give their classmates at school as a Valentine.
You can find the free crochet treat bag pattern for the Valentine Treat Bags in this post below, or an ad-free print friendly version (including photo tutorials and heart chart) on Love Crafts, Ravelry, or on Etsy (aff).
These fun little crochet candy bags are a great stashbuster project!
We recently made them during a Mini Mystery Crochet Along and everyone was able to use leftover yarns they had laying around from other projects.
How perfect is that? A quick and easy crochet project that uses leftover yarn!
Easy Crochet Projects for Valentine's Day
Have you been scouring the internet asking yourself "What can I crochet for Valentine's Day?"
If so, you've come to the right place! These super cute Valentine Treat Bags make a perfect project to crochet for your kids or grandkids, or for their classmates.
I've also crocheted Stacked Hearts Treat Holders for girls in Claire's class. They double as a headband after the treat is removed. How fun is that?!
Happy Monsters Bookmarks are also a big hit with the kids. These cute little page huggers work up lightening fast and also make a great stashbuster project!
A Great Crochet Accessory for 18" Dolls
During our Mini Mystery Crochet Along, a crocheter mentioned that she is planning to make these cute crochet heart bags for her granddaughter's 18" dolls.
They are the perfect size for an 18" doll bag! What a fantastic idea!
I have a few other cute crochet projects for dolls you may love too!

At first glance, are you intimidated by the textured crochet heart pattern on the front of the candy bag? Don't be!
This crochet candy bag uses basic stitches, mostly single crochet (sc).
The crochet heart design uses another basic crochet stitch, the double crochet (dc).
To make the heart "POP", you simply work the double crochet in the front loop only (FLO) of a stitch 2 rounds below.
Sounds tricky, but don't fret!
I've included LOTS of step-by-step photos to help you successfully complete your Valentine's treat bag!
I used this same technique on my Argyle Beanie & Slouch, the most popular crochet beanie pattern on my blog! Crocheters absolutely LOVE it!
Cotton has always been my go-to fiber for crochet bags and Lion Brand 24/7 was the perfect choice for this project. Available in 37 incredible colors, Lion Brand 24/7 cotton yarn is a worsted-weight, mercerized cotton yarn with a beautiful sheen and fantastic stitch definition.
You’ll find many great color combinations that are perfect for your Valentines Treat Bags.
Easily substitute another worsted weight yarn with a different fiber content, such as an acrylic like Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice.
You could also substitute a lighter weight yarn, such as a DK or sport weight, for a smaller treat bag. I think it would make a super cute 18" doll bag.
Or, substitute a chunky or super bulky yarn for a larger crochet bag.
If you choose a lighter or heavier yarn, make sure to adjust your hook size accordingly.
