You need to crochet a pocket tissue pouch

Having the sniffs? You need to crochet a pocket tissue pouch to keep handy in your bag, car, pocket or diaper bag.

As a mother of adult children, with children, I am still the tissue box wherever we go!

The girly tissue pouch is quick and easy to make for all your friends, to sell at craft fairs or why not make it for yourself?

In case you are thinking, it is not suitable for boys or men, you can still use the pattern, without the scallops.
