DIY Compact Mirror Pouch & Matching Perfume Atomizer Case – Crochet Patterns

My mirror always gets scratched from being carried in a cosmetic bag full of sharp objects so I thought I need one of those to solve this problem. This is very quick and easy DIY case for classic, round mirror (like this one from Kimmidoll) – made on the bus during school run yesterday… It took me less than an hour to make the whole thing and today I made another one for my mum and for the step by step photos for you at the same time ;)


  • DK yarn

Please note that names of the stitches in UK & US vary, this is UK pattern, click through for crochet stitches conversion chart.

stitches used: chain (ch), double crochet (dc), slip stitch (ss)


Start with 3 ch, close the chain with ss to create a circle.


  • Work 1 ch and then about 10 dc into the middle of the circle.
  • Without closing the round just move to the second round and work 2 dc into each stitch of the previous round.


  • Move to the second round straight away, without closing the first one.
  • Work dc around and around in snail shell like pattern adding stitches: first work 2 dc into each stitch, then 2 dc 1 dc and finally working only 1 dc per stitch of the base. The circle have to stay flat so if it is wrapping up there is not enough stitches – increase amount of added dc. If the circle become wavy it means there is too many stitches – reduce amount of added dc stitches.
  • Once the circle is big enough (size of your compact mirror) finish the round by working about 4 ss.
  • Finish it off and cut of the yarn.


  • Repeat all of the steps to create second circle, but do not cut of the yarn.

  • Use the same piece of year that is still connected to one of the circles to connect two halves together.
  • Connect them working ss stitches around the circles until the hole is only big enough to slide the mirror in, in my case I left the whole big as about ¼ of the circle.
  • Finish and cut off the yarn.

If you have a while you can also make other matching cases like this case I made for my perfume atomiser (like this one from Travalo).

  • Start the same like the mirror pouch but do not add extra dc stiches, just continue going round and round.
  • The pouch will start bending up, turn it inside out and continue working dc until the case is long enough.
  • Finish with 3 – 4 rounds of ss to make the closing tighter.
