Rainbow Happy Fun Pouch
CHEER UP WITH CROCHET!
I wanted a simple pattern with which to try out the Sharp Hook but that could be done without the Sharp Hook too. I utilized a stitch pattern I used before, so there’s already a video tutorial for the stitches if you need help there.
You can use any weight yarn you have, just use a hook one size smaller than that recommended on the label. As written, the pouch is 6.5″ tall and 9.5″ wide, but the great thing about pouches is they’re useful at any size!
A LITTLE CLOUDY…
For the appliques I used a free pattern from Fiber Flux: One Round Cloud, PDF DOWNLOAD BELLOW. They took hardly any yarn at all! And I gave one a little smiley face with some scrap yarn. As you do when making a Rainbow Happy Fun Pouch.

Measure the length of zipper needed. If the zipper is too long, sew a new stopper with matching thread, by sewing around the zipper repeatedly so it cannot open.
Working into Round 26, attach the zipper. If you’re using a needle and thread, sew it on with the back stitch.
