I have so many coins lying around that I had no choice but to make a coin pouch!
And if I am going to be making a coin pouch, I might as well make a cute one that comes in the shape of a watermelon! I have been using the coin pouch that I crocheted for the past week and it is the best! I just throw it in whatever bag I am carrying and whenever I need any change, I proudly pull out my coin pouch.
If you have coins that need a cute colorful home, this pattern is for you!
