This mini crochet drawstring pouch is a cute and fun project! It can hold your essentials and secure them with a drawstring closure. It’s great for beginners or non-beginners looking to use up scrap yarn. And since it’s a basic shape, the colors can be altered to create different fruit-themed pouches!

For another one of my crochet pouch patterns, check out the Heart Granny Square Pouch! It’s also a drawstring pouch, but it’s slightly more difficult than this pattern.

Beginner Crochet Project

This is a great pattern for beginners or even more advanced crocheters looking for a quick and fun project! This pattern only uses one main stitch: the single crochet. This is a basic stitch that all crocheters should know and this is a great project to practice it. More seasoned crocheters might like a cute crochet project to use up their scrap yarn.

Yarn Alternative

This pattern works for other yarns, too! I made another pouch with Red Heart Super Saver Ombre in “Green Apple” and “Cafe” and a 5mm hook. This is the same pattern, just with different colorwork and seeds to make a kiwi-themed pouch!

Each chain should have two single crochets, one on either side. The stitch marker will mark the first stitch of each round.

Rounds 2-14: sc in st with marker, move marker to new st, sc around until marker

For a taller pouch, do more rounds.

Sewing on Seeds

Note: You can sew the seeds on at the end, but I found it to be a little easier without the leaves and drawstrings in the way.

Cut a strand of your seed color yarn about 100 centimeters/40 inches long.

Sew on little Vs for the seeds of the strawberry. View video tutorial for sewing technique.

Leaves

Flatten the pouch to see which stitch it folds on.

Attach your leaf color yarn to the 3rd st from the st at the fold on the left.

Round 1: *ch4, sk2, sl st,* rep between ** 9 more times (10 ch-sp)

Round 2: ch1, *sc4 in next ch-sp,* rep between ** 9 more times, sl st (40)

Fasten off.

Crocheting Strings

Make a slipknot with a short loose end, ch35, fasten off with a short loose end

For longer drawstrings, do more chains.

Rep once more for a second string.

Dimensions: 21 centimeters long (8.27 inches)

Inserting Drawstrings

Flatten the pouch. There should be 5 ch-sp on either side.

Pull one of your strings halfway through both ch-sp at the end of one side.

Weave one half of the string to the other end by going over and under the slip stitches.

Flip the pouch and repeat with the other half of the string. If the strings aren’t even, tug on the shorter one to even it out.

Tie the ends together with the knot close to the chains.

Repeat with the other string starting in the opposite end. Make sure to always weave it above the first string, so it doesn’t get tangled.

Trim the ends until they are about 1 centimeters long.
