Instructables
I've seen pictures of these around the internet, and I loved the idea of using a hole in the doily as part of the closure. I finally got around to making one for myself so here's how I did it.
These would be perfect little presents for the holidays, and you could even use one of your grandmother's old doilies to make this gift for her.

Step 1: Materials

Here are the ingredients necessary for this project:
-- crochet hook
-- knitting yarn or crochet thread (I think I used crochet thread size 10, but it's been awhile since I bought it. ^^)
(NOTE: You could just purchase a doily if your crochet skills aren't up for this, but crocheting it yourself just makes everything more special and personalized.)
-- fabric (exterior and liner) (7.5" x 5" for my final size of 3.5" x 4.25", but feel free to adjust to your needs. I just got the width of my doily, included 0.5" to make the pouch's mouth bigger than the doily, and added .5" for seam allowance to get the width. For the length, I estimated how long I wanted the pouch (3.5") and doubled it before adding 0.5" for seam allowance.)
-- a button for the closure
-- sewing needle and thread
-- scissors
-- scrap paper
-- pencil

Optional:
-- sewing machine

Thanks for the nice comment! It's not quite my idea; I saw pictures of this floating around in the internet. I did come up with the process and tutorial though.
Cute! Love the color combinations :)
