DIY Valentine's Day Gift Pouch + Gift Card Holder

Hey Guys! In honor of Valentine's Day I thought I'd come up with a quick and simple pattern to help spread some love. The Sweetheart Pouch is a cute little pouch which can hold a small Valentine's Day card and a gift card, candy, or whatever else you think would make your sweetheart beam with joy. The design of the pattern is cute with some detail but also very simple which is great for those of us with children, nieces or nephews, close friends and colleges, or even students that we care for.

This pattern is beginner level but I used a few slightly challenging techniques to knit this up and I figured that some of you may want a more detailed explanation of them so here we go!
