Mini First Aid Crochet Pouch for the Essentials
Bandaids are essential in our home. They magically make all the hurt go away for my kids. That is why it is good to keep a first aid kit in your purse, backpack, and car. This crochet zipper pouch can hold tons of bandaids as well as antibiotic creams, sunscreen, and hand sanitizer.

The Premium Ad-Free PDF Pattern
Below you will find the free pattern with all the instructional photos and videos needed to complete the pattern, but I am also aware that several of us like to crochet on the couch, in the car, or in bed with a printout of the pattern. This is why I also offer a nicely formatted large font PDF version of the pattern that can be purchased on Etsy or Ravelry. You can print the pattern and take it on the go with you or tuck it into your project bag.

Adding a Zipper to your Crochet Pouch
Next, we will add a zipper to the crochet pouch. You will use a sharp needle and yarn or thread to sew your zipper in. Here are some tips for helping you sew your zipper.
– Unzip your zipper to make it easier to sew in place.
– Fold back the flap that is before the beginning of the zipper and sew it down.
– Sew your zipper 1/4 inch away from the top of the last row of stitches. This will prevent the zipper from snagging on the yarn.
-Sew from one end of the zipper to the other and back to create a very secure seam.
– If your zipper is too long, tuck the excess zipper into the pouch.
Sew back and forth through the last row of your pouch, keeping the zipper about 1/4 inch away from the yarn.
Creating a Flat Bottom
We are going to use a nifty sewing trick to create a flat bottom on our zipper pouch.
First, turn your pouch inside out. Take notice of the bottom seam or fold and where the fabric folds around the side. I will call this our side and bottom seams, even though there is no actual seam.
Press one side seam down so it is laying on top of the bottom seam. This will create a point at the corner.
Count up 4 rows and sew a line across that row. I sewed back and forth to create a secure seam. Knot and weave in your ends. Repeat this for the other side then turn your pouch right side out.
Adding a Carabiner Loop (Optional)
A carabiner is a great way to secure the pouch to a backpack or the side of a purse.
With your main color CH 10.
Row 1: SC in 2nd CH from hook, SC in next 8 CH. (9)
Row 2: CH1, turn, SC 9.
Fasten off, leaving a long yarn end to sew the loop to the side of your first aid bag.
Now your Mini First Aid Crochet Pouch is complete and ready to be enjoyed. They work up fast and make a great gift.
