Felt pouches are fun, easy and so useful! They can safely store your sunglasses, cards, jewelry, passports, crafting supplies, the uses are endless. Simply size the pouch to whatever you are planning to put in them. This week we’re going to show you four fabulous pouch designs to inspire your creativity.
What You’ll Need:
Thread and a sewing needle
Pouch #1 – Pom Poms Galore
This pouch uses pom poms for a fun pop of colour!
Take two pieces of felt and cut them to the size you need. Lay the two felts against either other, cutting the lining slightly smaller than the outer piece.
Fold the bottom third of the felt up to create a pouch. Use some thread to create a ladder stitch on both sides of the felt. Follow this diagram to make this easy, yet impressive stitch:

Fold the top half of the pouch down and use some more thread to sew some pom poms along the edge of the flap.

Pouch #2 – Pineapple Persuasion
This pouch is made to hold a cell phone safe and sound.
Measure your phone against a piece of felt. Fold the felt in half and use a ladder stitch along the open edge and the bottom.
Cut a yellow oval and a green stem from a sheet of felt. Sew some small chevrons into the yellow oval to make some pineapple spikes and then use some hot glue to attach the pineapple to the front of the pouch.
Complete! It’s really just that easy.
Pouch #3 – The Envelope
Two stitches is all that’s need here – no joke!
Cut two pieces of felt into a square. It can be any size, but it has to be a square for this design to work. This time, leave the two pieces of felt the same size.
Working with the square turned towards you to make a diamond, fold two corners in to meet in the middle. Secure with a simple stitch.
Fold one more corner to meet the other two, and sew this one to the others.
Add a snap to the middle and to the remaining loose corner.

Pouch #4 – Jewel Tones
This pouch repeats many of the steps from Pouch #1 but instead of adding pom poms, try adding a brooch or pendant. Makes a great pouch for all of your travel documents – Bon Voyage! Pro Tip – make a few for different trips. Going to the beach – palm trees and sea creatures. Paris – try an Eiffel Tower. Cruise? – how about an anchor?
