Crocheted gift pouches are the perfect little something to whip up during the holiday season, so I've pulled some of my projects from the archives to give you some inspiration. I have been known to crochet little projects like this in the car to give upon arrival, so you certainly can too, especially if you have a few good hours!
Gather up some odds and ends from your stash and some hooks in a few sizes too, and with my patterns to boot, you're all set. And even if you don't complete the little pouches on the way, little ones especially would delight in seeing you whip something up just for them once you get there! Crocheting and spending time with friends and family are a great combo as you can crochet and catch up at the same time, right?
Chunky crocheted gift pouches that combine one strand of variegated yarn with one solid strand of yarn look amazing and make a great statement. So check out the complete instructions for this special crocheted gift pouch, which is called the crocheted gelt pouch for Hanukkah and have fun combining a bunch of yarn scraps from your stash.
This is the same chunky crocheted gift pouch, the crocheted gelt pouch for Hanukkah, just with different yarn, really worth giving this one a try, as there are so many ways to go!
Super chunky yarn stripes are also perfect as a permanent pouch to hold a collection of little toys, so refer to my crocheted striped gift pouch pattern which is a perfect beginner project with great results. Did you notice that the tie is like a road, and the stripes are sort of like construction site colors? That is because this fun pouch full of little folks accompanied a gift of a yellow tractor.
A chunky granny medallion makes the perfect base for a crocheted pouch, and gives this pouch an extra special touch to hold that little gift or gifts from the heart. Check out my granny medallion crocheted gift pouch pattern, and make a bunch!
These striped crochet pouches were actually crocheted after the holiday season as a little birthday gift for a friend of my daughter's and would be perfect holding a crocheted washcloth and a beautiful bar of soap, or just about anything you can think of! Check out my crocheted cotton gift pouch pattern and enjoy giving the gift of handmade.
This little striped cotton lacy trimmed crochet pouch is the perfect little gift pouch for a delicate gift, and looks great in your favorite colors. I just realized that this was the first pouch I crocheted that started our little tradition of crocheted pouches for Hanukkah, so check out my oh so simple crocheted gift pouch pattern, and start your own tradition too!
That is it for this little roundup from the archives, and hope you are inspired to crochet some gift pouches yourself. I have to admit, this year I actually did not have time to crochet gift pouches for my kids for the first night of Hanukkah as I had done for the past four years, instead i whipped up some fun patchwork fleece gift pouches which are great looking but certainly can't be made in the car as you need a sewing machine! Wishing you all a happy creative holiday season!
