Crocheted pouch with a doily flap

This is what I just finished making last night... It is a crocheted pouch with a doily flap.
I used 100% wool yarns and placed a small wood bead in the center of the flap.

When making this project, I first crocheted a simple pouch measuring about
5.75 in x 4.5 in (14.5 cm x 11.5 cm).

The bottom view.

Then I changed the yarn color and crocheted a half size doily on to the opening of the pouch to make a flap.

I lightly followed instructions from this Japanese book: "Small Lace Crochet Projects"
ISBN: ISBN-13: 978-4834729627

Here are more of the beautiful images from this book...

Below, the pouch is sitting on my younger daughter's (9 yrs) palms...
She helped take pictures of the pouch.

I think I really like the natural look of this :)

Well, thanks again for reading, and hope you have a good week :)

Very cute!

I have this one book, about crocheting jewelry. Some really beatiful pictures. It's all in Japanese though.
