I've been dying to post this pattern for a while now! My testers approve and Paige from Azren Photography has created beautiful pictures of this mini heart pouch! I'll wait while you stare at them...
I really couldn't stick to just one "theme" to post, they're all too beautiful not to share.

So anyway, the knit stitch AKA waist coat stitch AKA what ever you want to call it has been really popular, and I kept swooning over how much it resembled knit! And when I saw that a heart pattern could be created from this stitch, I knew I needed to make something with it. If you haven't seen or tried this stitch yet, I advise you do. It's super easy! Oh, and the color possibilities!
Since this was a very basic stitch, I wanted to mix it with other media to really give the item depth so I decided on making a small pouch complete with lining and a zipper on top for closure. Nobody can have enough bags. I put bags IN my bags. Like since I carry multiple chapsticks with me, I like to keep them all in one place. Ya know what I mean? Small sized pouches where you can store your small items to keep them neat and tidy always come in handy.
The pouch measures about 6 inches in width and 4.5 inches in height. It's perfect for make-up, craft items/notions (think: buttons, needles, safety eyes, stitch markers, pins, etc.), small office supplies, small planning accessories, change/small bills, nail polish, jewelry, crayons and a small notepad(for your kids), bandaids/sanitizer/OTC meds for your purse, ANYTHING! I'm sure you can think of at least a few other items to store in a small pouch that can go with you anywhere. Like I said, I'm a fan of small pouches. I use them for everything.
So now that you feel the need to make ALL the small pouches, here's the run down..
