Crochet Fruit Pouch - Free Crochet Pattern

Tuesday 15 February 2022

This is a crochet pattern to make this adorable drawstring fruit pouch. You can make it in all sorts of colours to make different fruits!

Pictured I have a peach and a lemon. Use dark purple to make a plum, orange to make an orange, green or red to make an apple, or even pink with white to make dragon fruit. The options are endless...

With this plush yarn, the pouch is large enough to fit a lipstick and some AirPods, to fit easily inside your purse. The lemon I made, using Hobbii Baby Snuggle, measures at 14cmx14cm. The peach I made, using Premier Parfait Chunky, measures at 16cmx16cm. If you use thicker yarn and a bigger hook, it could even fit your phone.
