THIS IS MY OWN ORIGINAL PATTERN

 
RETAINER/PARTIAL PLATE TOTE

I use to work in a fast food restaurant, when I was in high school.  It was one of those where you had to bus your own table after you ate.  I can't tell you how many times kids - or their parents - would come in and ask to go through the trash because a retainer had been left on the tray, then forgotten and dumped!  I'm a new partial plate wearer too, and I hate them and like to take them out when eating.  I made this little holder so that I can put them into this and slip it in my purse and always know where they are when they're not in my mouth!
 
Small amount worsted weight kitchen cotton (I used a yellow and white variegated)
size F hook
small "baby" sized button
 
Chain 31, join with slip stitch to form ring.
Row 1:  Single crochet in each chain around.  Join with slip stitch. Chain 1.
Row 2-15:  Repeat row 1.
Row 16:  Hold front and back sides together and single crochet through both thickness to close the bottom of the "tote".  Fasten off.
 
On back side of tote,  in center stitch, join yarn with a slip stitch.  Chain 10, slip stitch into same stitch as joining slip stitch.  Fasten off.
 
On front side of tote, in center on row 4 from top, add button or bead for closing tote.  All finished!
