Knitted Pouches

I was inspired to make these knitted pouches after reading about them on Small Things. They require just scraps to make and they knit up SO fast - really, under an hour for this not-so-fast knitter! I made one for each of my kiddos. They're the perfect size to hold tiny treasures. :)

~Thank you for your comments!~

I have been wanting to make some of those pouches too. They remind me of the time when my oldest two kiddos attended a Waldorf Kindergarten in Germany. They made pouches out of felt and weren't knitted. The treasures they put in there were priceless. Thanks for sharing.

So fun! :) I might make a few for my Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes this year.

oh cute! can you give a pattern for these... for us that are not so intuitive :)

these can be great for color matching (e.g put all blue in blue pouch) as well as fine motor skills. :)

as always, you have the best ideas!

Thanks for your comments!

Shaheen, you'll see the pattern link imbedded in the words "these little pouches". :) Believe me, I'm not so intuitive that I'd be able to create these without finding some type of pattern to follow!

I LOVE these. I haven't knitted in ages but I'm very inspired to pick it up again and use up those left-over bits of yarn. Simple enough that it's not too daunting but practical.
