Pouch For Valentine's Gift (Card) >>> "Kapsicka" na Valentynsky Darek (napr. Volaci Kartu)

The other day my friend came for visit. Besides local "politics" we were also talking about children, upcoming Valentine's Day, and what to get for them. She told me she would love to give her teen daughter a gift card to her favorite store, but that she would love to give it to her in more special or personalized way and not just the "store" way... I asked her: "And where is problem? Crochet for her a "gift card" pouch, put the card inside. It cannot get any more personalized than that. After the Valentine's she can use it for her cell phone if it is small enough. Or use it to give someone else a gift card in it. It could be used even for some chocolate candies, or some tiny toy, or even money."

to the left you can see one that I made just for inspiration.

Step-by-Step Directions:
Pouch

Crochet thread (size 10) - double it.

1. ch 34 - connect with sl st
2. crochet twenty-eight rows of sc
3. create decorative bottom by connecting opposite sides - sl st first two opposite ch, ch 4, skip one, sl st the other two opposite ch, ch 4 and so on...

Heart (start from the tip)

I used a red color crochet thread

1. ch 3
2. one sc
3. turn around - 3 sc (increase at each end)
4. turn around - 5 sc (increase at each end)
.
.
when you have 11 to 13 stitches, divide them into two halves. work on one half at the time - decrease on each end one stitch -until you have 3 stitches left. Do the same for the other half. When finished with heart - sew it on. Insert the card inside and you have a personalized gift that comes from your heart.

Nedavno jsem mela kamaradku na navsteve a bavili jsme se o vsem moznem a rec samozrejme prisla i na deti a co jim koupit k Valentynovi. Kamaradka mi rekla, ze koupi dceri darkovou kartu, ale ze by rada aby to bylo vice osobni, nez takove "obchodni". Ptam se ji: "A kde je problem? Uhackuj ji malou mosnicku veliskosti te karty a vloz ji dovnitr a bude to vemi osobni. Po Valentynovi to muze pouzit jako kryt na svul mobil, jestli je jeji telefon maly, anebo muze nekomu dat darkovou kartu v teto "mosnicce". Dokonce muze byt pouzita na cokoladove bonbony, nebo na malilinkate hracicky, neboo na penize."

Vyse vidite foto jedne, kterou jsem uhackovala pro inspiraci.

Postup:
Mosnicka

Bila prize na hackovni (velikost 10) - dvojita.


1. zacneme na 34 ok - spojime retizkem
2. hackujeme 28 rad kratkych sloupku
3. vytvorime ozdobne dno shackovavanim dvou proti sobe lezicich ocek - takze retiskovym okem spojime prvni dve ocka, pak uhackujeme retizek ze 4 ocek, pak preskocime ocko a spojime dalsi proti sobe lezici - atd. Uknoncime a zacistime

Srdicko (zacneme od spicky)

Pouzila jsem cervenou prizi na hackovani



1. uhackujeme 3 retizky
2. v druhe rade uhackujeme 1 kratky sloupek
3. otocime - 3 kratke sl - tj. pridavame na kazdem konci
4. otocime - 5 kr sl - tj. pridavame na kazdem konci
.
.
kdyz mame 11 - 13 kr sl rozdelime na dve poloviny a tvorime obloucky (srdicka = kazde zvlast) ujimanim jednoho ocka na kazdem konci - az nam zustanou 3 sl. Srdicko prisijeme na mosniku.
