Watermelon Pouch

 Good morning!

Today's Pattern is such a fun little item, a small pouch! Great for many number of things. We keep dice in ours, but they would also be great to hold a few small tampons too.

This pattern uses beads, and for those of you familiar with them, this wont be a problem, but if you haven't used beads before you will need a bit of a lesson. Now I could type out a lengthy description on how to do this, but I think it would be easier to show you a video so, Here is a fantastic one by the Crochet Crowd.

The trick to getting these beads to look like seeds is to give them random placement. So! The instructions do not tell you when to add the beads, just place them where it feels right for you. I used 5 on this particular one, but they were rather largish beads, and had I used smaller ones I would have added some more.
