Tooth Fairy Pouch...



Tooth Fairy Pouch

Well, this evening, baby tooth #2, decided to come out of my six year old grandson's mouth.  Jacob was more excited to have a tooth for the Tooth Fairy than anything else...lol.

So, with the tooth so small, I decided to whip up a pouch for him to secure his tooth in so the Tooth Fairy could retrieve the tooth and leave him some money under his pillow...and it would lay under his pillow without any bulkiness.

Materials:
--4mm hook
--variegated #4 worsted weight yarn
--small button
--small piece of fabric for lining
--tapestry needle for weaving
--needle for sewing button

Directions:
Pouch:
1.  Chain 11.  Single crochet in 2nd chain from hook and across until the last chain.  Into the last chain, 3 single crochet.  Now, rotate so that you're working on the opposite side of the base chain.  Single crochet in the next stitch and across, until the last stitch.  2 single crochet in last stitch.  Slip stitch to first stitch to join and chain 1.  (22)
2.  Single crochet in first stitch and into the next 10 stitches.  3 single crochet in the next stitch.  Single crochet in the next 10 stitches.  3 single crochet in the last stitch.  Slip stitch to first stitch to join and chain 1.  (26)
3-12.  1 single crochet in each stitch around.  Slip stitch to first stitch to join and chain 1.  (At the end of Round 12, you will chain 1 and turn to work in the stitches you just completed)

Flap:
13.  With hook turned to work the stitches you just made at the end of Round 12,  you will do 1 single crochet stitch in each of the 13 stitches.  Chain 1 and turn.  (13)
14-18.  These are made in rows and not rounds.  You will be working 1 single crochet into each stitch across.  Chain 1 and turn.  At the end of Row 18, do not fasten off.  (13)
19.  Slip stitch over to the 5th stitch and chain 1.  Into the 5th stitch, you will also complete 1 single crochet stitch.  Then chain 2, and skip 2 stitches.  Then 1 single crochet in the next stitch.  Chain 1 and turn.
20.  1 single crochet in the first stitch, 2 single crochet into the chain 2 space and 1 single crochet in the last stitch.  Fasten off and weave ends.  Buttonhole is made.

To make the liner:
I laid my pouch on my fabric and turned pouch over so I get the approximate length I needed.  I then turned right sides facing each other and stitched about 1/4" inward.

Before getting to the bottom, I placed fabric on pouch to see if I needed to trim any excess fabric off before sewing across the bottom.  This took less than 5 minutes to complete.  I placed it inside the pouch and stitched the liner to the pouch in a coordinating color.



Add button:
I folded flap down for button placement, then I just simply stitched button on.  

As you can clearly see on the lining, I did not take the time to turn down the top and have a smooth edge.  It's a pouch for teeth.  I wasn't too concerned about it; and was fine with having a rough lining edge.  But, by all means, you can turn down the top edge before attaching the lining.  



Happy Crocheting.....
