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".
Then pull up the bottom edge and over lap the first edge by 3/4".
Press the entire pouch.
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!
