After a few rounds of practice, i managed to do the stitch, and made this phone pouch with it. i always end up having trouble getting my phone out if the opening is on the small side, which is why i made the opening this way.
Crocodile stitch is so pretty! It's a nice idea to make the opening like this! I, too, have trouble getting the phone out of a pouch that open at the smaller side - and that's especially annoying when the phone is ringing and I have to take it out in a hurry But does it stay inside the pouch when you carry it in your bag, or does it slip off?
alll i can advice is to keeptrying. the first teo tutorials did not work for me, either, one was too confusing, another got me stuck inthe second row. sometimes you have to dig trough several videos and tutorials before finding one that works for you.
