Crochet: Pouch for Longan


Two days ago, my husband asked me to go for Thai massage. We went after he got back from work. After 2 hours of massage, with a Thai language practice a little bit, the masseuse told me she have a Longan tree at home and she wanted to give us some of the Longan fruits. Right now is Longan season in Thailand, and when the season is come, the fruits are in the good quality, sweet and the price is very cheap (that’s why she prefer to give it for free than to sell it.) longan

So we made appointment to meet again on the next day (that was yesterday). When I woke up in the morning, I realized that I wanted to make something for her. I decided to make this cell phone pouch as soon as I saw the basket weave in mbak Thata’s 1st book.

Lately I like to play with fpdc stitch. And this HP pouch have fpdc and also bpdc. When I made this pouch, I learned that my previous fpdc was not correct. The correct one will create a straight line, but what I did create a dashed line (see my tote bag to compare).

Anyway, I kinda like the ‘wrong’ fpdc version. Now I have alternatives in making fpdc 🙂 .
