Easy Knit Pouch
Where do you put your wallet, keys, and nature treasures when you don't have pockets? We use a baby wrap, purses just fall right off, and most of my clothes don't have pockets. This belt pouch has been a wonderful solution, and its simple to make.
First knit a rectangle about 7"X11" using a simple garter stitch.
Fold the rectangle as shown and sew the sides of the pouch. At this point you can add a zipper, button, snap, or any other enclosure. If you want to use this as a purse add a strap and you are done. or...
I made two straps of felt so I could attach my pouch to a belt. I reinforced the sides by sewing a stitch down the edges.
Then I sewed them to the back of the pouch. Once the straps were finished my pouch was complete. I love this little bag and hope you will to. Be well and have fun.
