This little pouch can be used for anything small such as candy, coins, small toys and knick-knacks. It has a drawstring at the top to keep things from falling out. If using it for really small items, I would suggest making a simple liner, but otherwise it’s good to go.
And if you crocheted it in a cotton, you could also use it as a cute soap saver. Keep it for yourself, or give them as gifts for the upcoming holiday season.
It makes for an awesome stashbuster as well. I used my leftovers from the Miski 100% Baby Llama that I used in my Simple Ear Warmer pattern.
The yarn was a gift from Yarn Candy Bargains. It is spun in Peru. The care instructions for this luxury yarn are to handwash, dry flat, cool iron, and may be dry cleaned. To find out more or to place your order, visit this post.
