Free Knit Pattern-- Feminine Sani Pouch

Friday, November 22, 2019

Need to find a way to be discreet when it’s that time of the month? This quick and easy pattern is the perfect pouch to keep your sanitary napkins out of sight.

I really love making practical things. This design was initiated because one of my children found my empty pouch and hid it. The one they hid was one that was made out of fabric and sewn. Unfortunately it's been years since I touched a sewing machine and I just don't have the time at this stage of my life to relearn. (Kids keep me way too busy.)

This pattern is a very quick one. Hope you enjoy it!

BO knitwise

Take some yarn and leaving a tail start winding the yarn around the center of the ribbon panel. Wind the yarn as much to your liking and tie off the end with the tail that you left from the beginning. You will take the tails to secure it to the pouch.

Center your ribbon in the middle of the pouch. The ribbon will act as a “button” so that you can use the loop on the flap of the pouch to close it.
