Crochet Pattern: Binder Pouch
Row 1: ch 32, dc in third ch from hook and in each ch across: 30 dc
Row 2: ch 1, turn, sc in each dc across: 30 sc
Row 3 – 44: ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across: 30 sc
Finish off.

Fold your piece in half, such that row 2 touches the last row (row 44). With a yarn needle, sew the edge of row 44 to row 2 to close the side of the pouch, then sew the bottom closed. Leave row 1 sticking out on the left hand side, since the spaces between the double crochet stitches will function as your ring holes.

    Very nice and good idea. I think the part that you wrote “how the pouch in made” I believe it should say how the pouch is made. You added in instead of is.
