Crochet Pattern, Basketball Hoop Backpack

Instant download


As my oldest boy gets older, it becomes more and more difficult to find crochet designs he would enjoy. I have been forced to get creative! He absolutely loves his new gym back for carrying his basketball shoes, and my daughter wanted one too. :)

This basketball hoop backpack is perfect for any young basketball lover! It has the option of making a back pack or a cross body bag. It has one main compartment, with an easy option for an additional small pocket for a phone or wallet.

This pattern is a crochet pattern, with some basic tips for sewing lining. Sewing is not my expertise, but I’ve included step by step instructions as to how I lined and zippered the bag, which should be helpful.

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I work on a first paid, first made, policy. All custom orders are worked on in the order in which they are paid. Turn around times may vary due to busier times of the year. Please contact me if you have any questions about arrival times!

Returns & exchanges

There are no returns or refunds on custom orders. Custom orders are made to your specifications and are difficult to resell. However, if and ONLY if it is a wearable item which was not made to fit properly, I will make a new one in the correct size. I require that the original item is shipped back to me, and will reimburse shipping costs. **PLEASE be sure to give the correct size when ordering though, or you will be responsible for the purchase of the additional item.

If any of my ready to ship items are deemed unsatisfactory, please contact me about the problem. If you'd like to return it, you must contact me within ONE week of receiving it. The customer is responsible for shipping item back to me, and will be refunded in full once I have received the item in the same condition in which it was received by the customer. If any damages are found upon immediately opening, customer must diligently photograph any or all damages seen and report to me, and I will take it up with the Post Office, as we handle your refund.

Additional policies

Please keep in mind, I am a full-time mommy with family priorities and commitments. I try to complete my orders in a timely fashion, but sometimes things come up. However, when I do work on them, I give them my full attention, and am mindful of every detail.
Thank you for being patient with me!
