This Small Tissue Pouch is super adorable, fast and easy to make. In fact, all you need to know is how to crochet single crochets. This pattern is not only a free pattern, but it is also available as a pdf download. I love making this Small Tissue Pouch for all my relatives as presents for birthdays or special holidays.
Every time, I gift one of these Small Tissue Pouches to someone I always get happy and surprised faces. I find this pouch so convenient for on the road or when just running errands. I always know where my tissues are. And now, you will be able to as well.
Wouldn’t this small tissue pouch be perfect for kids when they go back to school? Make it in a different color so boys are happy too, or go crazy and make it in neon colors for girls. I can see this even being great in rainbow colors (one color per row).
I love having this small tissue pouch in my purse. Having pollen allergies can make you have sudden sneeze attacks and when you then pull out this cute little pouch it makes the situation much better. At least for me.
So, before I sneeze again, let me tell you how to make this small tissue pouch. It is very fast to make, I think I made mine in under 30 minutes and that includes designing it, so I am sure you will be even faster.
You can even use it as a coin purse. I can see little girls using it to learn how to use money.
Now, before I show you the materials and the actual free crochet pattern, please also be sure to add this pattern to your Ravelry favorites by clicking the button below as that allows my pattern being shown to more people who might want to see it and also want to make it.

How to make the Small Tissue Pouch Crochet Pattern
You will need:
3 sc x 3 rows = 1 square inch
Stitch used (US terms):
sc = single crochet
4.75 inches x 3 inches (closed)
Row 1: Chain 15, then starting from the 2nd chain from the hook, crochet 1 sc in each BACK BUMP of the chains
Use a stitch marker as these are continuous rounds until the rows start again
Round 1: 2 sc in the same st, 1 sc in each st on the opposite side of the row that was just created, 3 sc in the last st (instead of 1 sc)
Round 2 – 10: 1 sc in each st all around
Now we start rows again for the latch
Row 1: 1 sc in the next 16 sts, ch 1, turn
Row 2 – 4: 1 sc in each st, ch 1, turn
Row 5: 1 sc dec, 1 sc in the next 12 sts, 1 sc dec, ch 1, turn
Row 6: 1 sc dec, 1 sc in the next 10 sts, 1 sc dec, ch 1, turn
Row 7 – 8: 1 sc in each st, ch 1, turn
Fasten off after the last row and weave in the ends. Now you can add some velcro (attach it with hot glue) and add your tissues to the pouch. It is now ready to be used.
