Crochet Small Drawstring Pouch

This crochet small drawstring pouch can be used to store small items or use it as a small gift pouch. It’s the perfect size for coins, candy, chapstick and anything similar. I’m using mine to hold my 4 AA batteries used in my camera.

This pouch is crocheted in a spiral using the seed stitch. I love this stitch because both the right and wrong sides look good to me. Maybe I’m the only one, but the texture on the wrong side is nice especially when done up in two colors.

Other similar patterns include this versatile pouch, the pretty simple pouch, or this cute little coin purse.

Skill Level


  • Yarn: Red Heart Super Saver (Worsted Weight (#4) 100% acrylic, 7 oz/198g – 364 yds/333m)
  • Hook Size: H/8-5.00mm
  • Other: Scissors, Stitch Marker, Yarn Needle.


  • When laying flat it measures 3" across and 4" from top to bottom.



  • The bag is worked in a spiral with the seed stitch – alternating between the single and double crochet stitches. Instead of fastening off, the color not in use is carried up at each round.
  • To make it quicker to crochet I cheated and made part of rnd 2 as part of rnd 1. That way you're not constantly changing up on the colors. Then in the end I sort of evened it back out by ending the rounds at the half-way mark. "Sort of" meaning both rounds were ended in the same spot as opposed to one on each side where they began. That results in a slightly lopsided pouch, but it worked out better colorwise. (See images at bottom)
