THIS PATTERN WAS DESIGNED BY Joanna of Goddess Crochet, EXCLUSIVELY FOR THE STITCHIN’ MOMMY
Bags are one of my favorite things to make because they are so useful! I have bag love for ALL shapes and sizes, of course, not all bags have to be big. As the saying goes, good things come in small packages! So today I have a small pouch crochet pattern to share. I prefer to use cotton yarn because of its durability, but you can use any kind of yarn and make a pretty button pouch.
This small crochet pouch is soft and ribbed, really nice to the touch! The size is spot on to hold anything you don’t want getting lost in the depths of your “big bag”. You know those “store points” cards that don’t fit in your wallet, but you cram them in anyway? They would fit perfect in this cute little crochet bag!
Don’t forget to share your pictures on Ravelry. I love seeing your finished items! Have fun and happy hooking!
