Keyring Pouch

What better way to use up scraps of yarn, than with a quick and easy project that you can make a bajillion of in a day?!

When I joined this stashdown CAL, I knew I was going to make something super small, that will work with just about all lengths of yarn scraps. 

A small pouch that can be made for guys and gals is perfect! These can be made as gifts, or even for craft fairs. 



The Keyring Pouch is the perfect storage for small items like earbuds or coins, and it easily fits on your keychain or bag zipper. Also great for tossing in a purse.

If you're not familiar with this CAL, you can get the details HERE

  1. Cute. I think I'll use one colour to signify the family and the other specific to the person. Their favourite colour or something
