Spring Craft Project: Sunflower Pouch

Updated: May 4, 2023

May 2023 Craft Project



This month I wanted to share a simple crochet craft you can easily make. For this demonstration I will be using red and green yarn to show the difference between the front piece and back pieces for this project. This is a great craft to gift to family and friends.

Side note: This is my first ever written pattern! I hope it's not too confusing.


Stitch Abbreviations:

ch- chain

sl st- slip stitch

sc- single crochet

hdc- half double crochet

dc- double crochet


Things you will need:

  • yarn in two different colors

  • crochet hook

  • yarn needle

  • sewing needle

  • scissors

  • thread

  • button

What I used:

  • Lion Brand Vanna's Choice, 100% acrylic yarn

  • Size 5mm crochet hook

*Note: ch 2 at the beginning is not considered a stitch*

Pattern:

Back: We'll start by making the back piece, take your first thread color and make a magic ring. I chose green to be my back piece.

Row 1: Ch 2 and make 12 Dc in magic circle (12)

Row 2: ch 2, 2 Dc in each stitch (24)

Row 3: ch 2, 2 dc, Dc, repeate (36)

Cut thread and fasten off


Front: Next, we'll be making the front piece. It starts the same way but when making the sunflower, you will need to color change at row 3. For this demonstration I'm sticking with the same color. Start with a magic ring.

Row 1: Ch 2 and make 12 Dc in magic circle (12)

Row 2: ch 2, 2 Dc in each stitch (24)

Row 3: *color change with second color* ch 2, 2 dc, Dc, repeat (36)

Row 4: Taking both circles, put wrong sides together and insert your hook into the back loops as shown in the image below. Follow the pattern for the next 3 stitches. Sc hdc dc, dc hdc sc, sl st *repeat til you reach stitch 27* after st 27 continue the pattern to the front piece of the pouch then cut thread and weave the ends.


Adding the button: Find a button that can fit snugly between the double crochet stitches. Position the button at center of the third row where we left an opening at the back (in my case the green circle). Sew the button and you are done!



And there you have it! A wonderful coin pouch. Thanks for making this craft with me. I hope it was fun and enjoyable for you! Feel free to use the pattern for personal use. Tag me on social media if you’ve made it. Pattern is free to use, do not sell pattern as your own.
