When you have a two year old around, you need to definitely have large bundles of tissues and wipes. While traveling it is extremely necessary to have tissue paper around especially when you bribe them with candies and chocolates so that they stay in one single place till you reach your destination. This pretty little crochet pouch is great to hold your tissues while on the go. I have used the Irish crochet stitch. This stitch is simple and looks really pretty when done. I have added a bright yellow star as an embellishment to this cute pouch.
Stitches you must know:
Dc – double crochet
Sc – single crochet
Sl st – slip stitch
1 ball of worsted weight yarn in blue color
Leftover scraps of yellow yarn ( for the star)
Size 4 hook
Size 2.5 hook ( for the star)
Needle to weave ends
Row 1 – (2dc, ch 1, 2dc) in 5th ch from hook. * Skip 3 sts. ( 2dc, ch1, 2dc) in the next ch * . Repeat from * until 2 ch remains. Skip 1 ch, dc in the last. Turn.

Repeat row 2 until you reach a size of 10 inches in length.
Last row – Ch 1. 1 sc in each of the next 2 sts. *Slip st in the ch 1 st. Sc in the next 4 sts * Repeat from * till end. Fasten and weave off thread.
Fold from both the edges so that they meet at the center. Using a needle, bind the two sides and 5 sts at the opening.
