This pattern uses American crochet terms.
Start off by making a 30 ch st chain.
Row 1: sc in the second ch from the hook, sc in each remaining chain, chain 1, turn (29 total sc).
Row 2: sc in each stitch across, chain 1, turn (29 sc).
Rows 3 on: repeat Row 2 until the piece is about nine inches long.
Final Row (scalloped with button loop): sc in first two stitches, skip 2 stitches, 5 dc in next stitch, skip 2 stitches, sc in next stitch, skip 2 stitches, 5 dc in next stitch, skip 2 stitches, sc in next stitch, sc in next stitch, ch 10 (if using a smaller button, use fewer chain stitches to make button loop shorter), slip stitch to the top of the previous sc, sc in next stitch, skip 2 stitches, 5 dc in next stitch, skip 2 stitches, sc in next stitch, skip 2 stitches, 5 dc in next stitch, skip 2 stitches, sc in next 2 stitches. Finish off. Weave in ends.
Now you have a rectangle with scallops and and a button loop on one side. To make the pouch, fold the bottom straight edge up about 3-4 inches, and then fold the top scalloped edge down 1-2 inches, thusly:
