Crochet Squeeze Pouch

Crochet Squeeze Pouch | Flex Frame| Pinch Pouch for Sunglass Holder

The Crochet Squeeze Pouch has a squeeze top opening. The top is opened with just a squeeze of your thumb and finger and snaps close when you release the pressure.  This pouch is perfect for a coin purse, sunglass holder, or even to hold a few make-up items.

Squeeze crochet pouch

This project is created using a couple of different stitches,  the single and, the half-double crochet stitch.  It’s a beginner-friendly pattern and it can be easily worked. When finished you should have a nice crochet squeeze pouch.

YARN

I use an acrylic yarn, Brava Tweed from KnitPick. This yarn is made of 97% acrylic and 3% viscose, it is a 4-weight yarn that comes in a skein of 218 yards, 100 grams.

Using the Flex Frame Squeeze Closure will allow the pouch to have a squeeze top opening.  Which makes the pouch perfect for holding sunglasses, coins, or even make-up.  The closure I used was purchased from Amazon. Check the link to see if you can find the same one or something similar.

Construction of Crochet Squeeze Pouch

1. Lay swatch flat; fold in half.

2. Sew along the raw edge of the pouch, along the left or right side.

3. Place the opened Flex Frame, and lay it  down at the top of the crochet swatch

4. Fold the top of the crochet swatch down, to cover the Flex Frame. (You will sew along the area to secure the FlexFrame in place).

Note: (This step will be repeated on the opposite side, sewing the closure into place).

 

5. Sew along the opposite side’s raw edge of the pouch (left or right side)

6. Close the clasp, align the hinge and secure the clasp; by inserting the hinge pin (this is provided with the kit)

The Lucet Fork from Furl Crochet is so beautiful and a little hard to get my hands on. The vintage design and detail-oriented craftsmanship are just as gorgeous,

Nevertheless, if you can get your hands on one I'm sure it will be a great addition to your crochet tools.

7. Adjust the pouch to ensure everything is neat and adjusted. Weave in any tails and enjoy your Crochet Squeeze Pouch.
