Bind off and leave a long tail for sewing.

Sew the button closed, don’t cut the remaining tail. You will use it to attach the button to the pouch body.


You are done with the crocheting part. Make sure to weave in all the ends (except the button one).

To make your pouch even prettier, help even your stitches and straighten your edges, wet block your pouch body.

Don’t skip this step as it can make a huge difference. Read my detailed tutorial on why block, how-to, and all my tips and tricks if you need help.


Fold the rectangular section of the body in half, inside out and sew up the sides.

Fold the straight part of the case in half and sew on the sides

Attach the button in front of the buttonhole.

On the inside of the front flap, embroider your initials with color D. If you’re making the pouch as a gift you can also use a cute word or phrase such as “Love” or “Be Kind”.
