DESCRIPTION: Semi-elliptical coin pouch is constructed with single crochet stitches. Top opening trims are made with double crochet and picot crochets. To constrict the top opening the cords which have fringes, in the end, are placed through the stitches. The pattern is repeated on both sides of the pouch. The main pattern is an opium poppy with two buds on each side which covers most of the body (belly) and pedestal (almond) parts of the pouch. Pink contours enclose the shape made with metal threads. Under the poppy pattern, there is a border of diamond shapes environing the pouch. The end trim of the pouch is a fringe made of pink and metal threads.
