Crochet + fabric patchwork pouch

I love fabrics and I love to crochet... so for my first attempt, I combined them together into this patchwork pouch.  The yarn is 100% wool and the green fabric in the middle is corduroy from Joann's (it was on sale, of course).  First it was a bit scary to sew the crochet "round" and the corduroy together using my sewing machine (yes, I used my sewing machine), but basically I treated the entire top row of the crochet round as its "seam" and it worked just fine.   

The good part of this pouch is that without any interfacing, the crocheted bottom makes the pouch stand on its own. And I really like the "roundness" of this pouch.

It is a small pouch, but it's big enough to put my cell phone and car keys and some other small stuff inside. For the lining, I used cotton flower print.

Hope you have a good day :)
