Summer Stroll Cinch Pouch w/ Removable Shoulder Strap

Cathy, from The Crochet Crowd, challenged us to post a selfie with our current work in progress today. So I obliged. This is the lovely mugshot I posted…I was working on a pouch that I could throw in my crochet bag with my wallet, keys and sunglasses, and use while I’m out walking, site seeing or even shopping. With the addition of a removable shoulder strap, I’m hoping this does the trick!

I received a lot of requests for the pattern…but the project needed to be finished. So, I spent the afternoon finishing up the strap and managed to get the pattern written up tonight. I did rush a bit to get this out there for you guys, so let me know if you get confused or if something doesn’t seem right. And please…share pics and/ or post a link if you post it somewhere! I will be linking the pattern to Ravelry so please post your projects there if you are so inclined. I’d love to see what you do with the pattern.
