This Crochet Tissue Pouch is a must have for any purse. Tissues are one of the purse necessities and with this quick and easy pattern, you won’t be caught off guard when allergy sense or flu season hits.
My husband has always had bad allergies, so I whipped up a crochet tissue pouch for his glove box in his jeep and another on for my son’s backpack for school. This pouch makes a useful gift for just about anyone.
I added the extra pocket to this pouch so carry other useful items. You can tuck a small hand sanitizer, chap-stick or even sunscreen into the pocket to keep on hand. I made my pocket the size shown, but you can make the pocket bigger by adding extra chains to the starting chain.
I used some of my left over Red Heart Super Saver and Red Heart With Love worsted weight yarn for this project. Both of these yarns are great for everyday wear and tear items.
Each tissue pouch uses such a small amount of yarn, making this a great way to use up yarn scraps. I have started making a few extras to give to friends when they are sick. A Tupperware of homemade soup and a handmade crochet tissue pouch make a great get well soon gift.
This pattern is very beginner friendly and an easy one row repeat for both the pouch and the pocket. If you blink while scrolling you may miss the pattern.

Sewing Instructions for Crochet Tissue Pouch
To assembly your pouch, you will first want to lay your pocket on top of the pouch rectangle and sew it along the dotted lines in the photo below.
Next use your sewing pins and mark the center of the pouch. you can also just estimate this. I used a pink pin to mark this in the photos.
Then fold one side of the pouch until it is approximately 1/4 of an inch past the center of the pouch. Do the same with the other side and sew along the top and bottom of the pouch. I used yellow pins to mark the edge of the rectangle in the photos.
On the bottom side of the pouch, I just sewed the pouch layers together and not through the pouch and pocket. This made sewing much easier.
Once the top and bottom is sewn into place you are ready to stuff your pouch with a mini pack of tissues and other goodies that you want to keep on hand.
