This pattern/tutorial is a quick and incredibly easy one. It's for a cool little pouch that zippers closed, perfect for toting around spare hooks, pencils, glasses or even for makeup. I made a couple of them using different lengths of zippers... and these things are so darn easy to customize. The pouch is worked first into the zipper, then down-- making it a piece of cake to assemble. And I took lots of photos to help you make one of these for yourself!
In my most recent pattern, Edgar the Elephant, I chose to use one of Lion Brand's popular yarn lines, called Homespun Yarn. I feel like this yarn definitely gets a bad rap due to how hard it is to see the stitches, along with it's fraying ends. But even though it has it's drawbacks, I really really like this yarn.
So after you've finished up your pieces for The Matilda Tote, and you'd like to add the fabric and stabilizer, you're ready for this tutorial. I also think this post offers some good basic information if you'd like to add some structure/lining to any of your crochet projects!
