CROCHET POUCH FOR iPOD

26 March 2011

I did this pouch for Angie, a young friend in Melbourne.  Angie's birthday is in June.  Her mother is here for a visit, so with my crafting passion still on, I want to make her a gift so her mother can bring it home to her.  This is a very pre-birthday gift :)

I saw a picture of a crochet pouch online.  I like the pattern so I tried it out and added a little design of my own to the top part.  I also did a sling to hook onto the sides.  The sling can be shortened into half length as you can see from the pics.

 
 

The picture on the left shows the sling in half of its length by doing a double with both of the hooks on one side.  The picture on the right shows the full length of the sling.

 
A close look at the sling.....


MATERIAL:  Nylon thread - this is a smaller size than the one I used for the water bottle pouch.
