Men clothing catalogue is a very small list as compared to female clothing catalogue. Similarly, men’s wallet is small compared to women’s handbag. A female handbag is always considered as a “well of infinite items” that increases curiosity among men.
Well, I am killing this curiosity by naming a few important items that are common in every lady’s bag. And these are a bunch of keys, wallet, make-up kit, medical kit, sanitizer, a pack of tissues, and glares/glasses/goggles. But make no mistake, we are talking about women here.
So, everything has to be fashionable and a statement in itself. We get this stylish handbag but the job isn’t done yet. What about the small contents floating around in the universe inside our bag? Get a stylish pouch that complements your bag, adds to a statement and helps you manage the small items.
So, I decided to make a few pouches to the serve the purpose of a medical or a makeup kit.
The patterns are simple and made of scraps of yarn left from other projects. I made rectangular-sized pouches and stitch them from 2 sides. The sides can be 2 continuous sides or opposite sides. I have added pom-pom or chain rope or press button to tie the opening. The patterns are Crochet Sachet, Bobble, Double Crochet (DC) and Single Crochet (SC) stitch pouch and ripple pattern.
The rectangular Granny Square pattern is used to make this pouch. The closure of the pouch is crochet drawstring. The length of the Pouch is 12″, width is 7″. Fold the rectangle sideways. Apply the stitch at the bottom and on one of the sides.
The rectangular Ripple pattern is used to make this pouch. Snap-button is the closing act for the pouch. The length of the pouch is 7″, width is 10″. Fold the rectangle bottom up. Apply the stitches on both sides of the pouch.
The rectangular Ripple pattern is used to make this pouch. Snap-button is the closing act for the pouch. The length of the pouch is 14″, width is 8″. Fold the rectangle bottom up. Apply the stitches on both sides of the pouch.
Dimensions of the Crochet Sachet:-
- Height: 7″
- Width: 6″
Dimensions of the Ripple Pouch:-
- Height: 5″
- Weight: 7″
Dimensions of the Bobble Pouch:-
- Height: 7″
- Width: 8″
- The pouch closing can be drawstring made of crochet chain, ribbon, resin strap, snap-button, zip etc.
- You can add pom-pom, tassels, charms, miniature idols, mini toys, amulets etc matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. Link to make pom-pom and tassels.
- You can attach flowers, beads, appliques or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather, fabric etc to make it more interesting.
Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!
