I was first inspired by makeup pouches I saw on Pinterest and that were made by Anabelia Craft Design. Following her links brought me to the pattern page and I simply grabbed yarn I already had and started on this fun project.
Following Anabelia’s example, I have sewn a lining. I was lucky to have perfectly coordinated t-shirts in my pile of old clothes. I simply cut two rectangles after tracing the outside of the bags with a pen. I sew the sides and the bottom of two rectangles, right sides facing. Then I folded the top edge and sew it by hand on the crocheted bag.
I have also added a little wrislet that I have made with a crochet hook. With this addition, the pouches can become clutches. I first made a chain and afterward added a row of scallops. It could not be easier.
Now, do I keep them or do I give them away? Hmmm…. Though decision.
