R2-14: Ch 6, Dc into the 4th, 5th, and 6th chain from the hook. (Slst to the turning chain of the previous row, Ch 3, Work 3 Dc around the turning chain you Slst to.) Repeat from (to) to the end of the row.
R15-27: Turn, Slst to the last 3 Dc of the previous row, Ch3, turn. Work 3 Dc around the turning Ch of the previous row, *Slst to the next turning Ch, CH3, Work 3 Dc around the turning Ch of the previous row,* repeat from *to* until you are even with the top of the previous row.
Adding a Single Crochet Border to the C2C Zipper Pouch
To give this pouch a little more detail I added a single crochet border in an accent color. This also makes it much easier to sew together.
So add a Single crochet border, follow the Video Tutorial below or see the photo tutorial here.
Sewing it all Together
Using a yarn needle and yarn, use a running stitch to sew up the sides of the pouch. Check out my video tutorial Sewing for Crocheters if you need any guidance on sewing.
Next use another running stitch to sew in the zipper. Be sure to leave a little space between the zipper and the top of your pouch to prevent your yarn from getting stuck when you open and close the pouch.
Optional Liner (A no Sew Liner Method)
I wanted to store my hooks in one of my pouch and my yarn money in another. To keep my coins and tools from coming out through the holes in the fabric, I knew I needed a liner.
I wasn’t really in the mood to drag out my sewing machine, so I designed a no sew alternative.
Please note that in the photos I cut my fabric an inch too short. Follow the written instructions for yours to come out right.
Cut a piece of cotton fabric 9 inches by 10 inches and a piece of two sided fusible interfacing 9 inches by 8 inches.
Next, fold the edges of the cotton fabric in so that it is the same size as the interfacing. Iron the fabric to keep the folds in place.
I angled my corners to make them look nicer.
Now, remove the paper from one side of the fusible interfacing and place that side on the backside of the cotton fabric. (The side of the fabric that is faded and has the ends turned in.)
Using a low setting on the iron, gently iron the interfacing until it fuses to the cotton fabric.
Take your finished c2c zipper pouch and turn it inside out. Remove the paper from the other side of the interfacing and place that against the inside of the zipper pouch.
Using a low setting on the iron carefully iron the fused fabric and interfacing until it has fused with the pouch.
NOTE: Acrylic yarn can melt if the iron is too hot. Use a low setting and keep moving the iron to slowly heat the fabric and interfacing just enough to fuse.
Once the interfacing is fused, allow it to cool before turning the the pouch over and doing the other side. Once both sides are completed. Allow the second side to cool and then turn the pouch right side out. Now you have a pretty liner without sewing.
Your C2C Zipper Pouch is complete and ready to be filled with pens, pencils, crochet hooks and more.
