Little Lavendar Wristlet Pouch - Another new design!

This one I made for one of my niece's and thought I would share it with you!

This pattern is super simple and works up in under 20 minutes! I'm sure your little one would love to have one of these!


Small amount WW yarn

Small amount eyelash yarn

Size J Hook or any size as gauge does not matter.

Round 1: CH 6, HDC in 2nd CH from hook and in each CH across, working 3 HDC in last CH. Now continue working in opposite side of starting CH and work in each unused loop 1 HDC. Finish with 2 HDC in same space as beginning HDC. Join.

Round 2: (From this point on you will NOT join your rounds. Use contrasting yarn or a stitch marker to mark beginning stitch.) CH 2, HDC in each stitch across.

Rounds 3-10: HDC in each HDC around. At the end of round 10, join.


Without cutting off yarn, CH 25, now join back in same space as you started. Now turn your work, CH 1 and work a SC in each CH around and join to beginning stitch. Fasten off.


With eyelash yarn, working from the inside of the bag facing you, join yarn in any HDC. CH 1, 2 SC in each HDC around. Join, fasten off and weave in ends.

New design - Toilet Paper Cover

I couldn't find very many "Toilet Paper Covers" on-line for free, esp ones that are basic and can be adapted to fit any color scheme or Holiday time of year so I made one up myself! I made this one for Christmas but you can do it really in any color combination and it's easy enough to whip up in an afternoon.

If you'd like to make this, feel free to use my pattern! It has not been tested yet so please let me know if you find any errors!

Please do not copy this pattern or sell it as your own! You MAY NOT sell copies of this pattern on eBay, etsy or any other on-line forum. You MAY, however, sell the actual item made with this pattern.
