Tutorial: Little Pouch

Happy Friday, Friends!

Today, I wanted to show you a little pouch that I put together for my holiday traveling.  I wanted to take a little bag of vitamins, but I didn't want to use a plastic sandwich bag, and I didn't have anything else available.  So I sewed one up real quick!  It was super easy, super fast, and it did just the job I needed it to!

The best part was that I was able to use some scraps!  For the pouch I show you in this tutorial, the fabric measured 5" by 10".  This pouch is bigger than the first one I made, but I wanted it to comfortably fit gift cards.  I think it's the perfect size for that!

So, start with your fabric and fold the short ends over about 1/8" twice each and press in order to create a hemmed edge on the inside and outside flaps.

Once they are pressed, sew an 1/8" top stitch to secure it.

Next, with the right side of the fabric facing up, fold down the top 1 3/4".

Sew both of the raw ends from top to bottom using a quarter inch seam.

Using the pouch opening, flip the pouch right side out and push out all the corners.  Press the pouch one last time and presto! Cute, easy pouch!

I hope you'll enjoy making this cute, fast pouches whenever you're about to travel or would like to fancy up a gift card!

Have a great day!
