Crocheted Pouches

These beautiful pouches from Churchmouse Yarns, crocheted in Rowan Handknit Cotton are perfect as makeup bags, for knitting accessories, or for a variety of other uses. I would definitely line the pouch with beautiful fabric. Tip: Make a paper pattern for the lining by tracing the crocheted piece(s) onto light weight paper (tracing paper works well). For this type of project, add a small seam allowance, 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch. Cut the lining and stitch together. Hand sew the lining in place (wrong side against the inside of pouch) close to the zipper opening.
