This pouch was designed to hold my camera batteries. I’ve noticed a long time ago, that if you leave the batteries in the camera they go dead in no time. So it’s best to remove them after each use to help save money. And this little pouch is the perfect size to hold the 4 AA batteries. It’s actually a bit taller than what it needs to be for the batteries, but I figured this way you can use it for many other things as well.
For the edging I used the bullion stitch because it just makes it look nice. If you don’t like making the bullion you can substitute 5 double crochets instead of the bullions if you like.
Hope you enjoy.
