That cool embossed felt is from Michaels. they have all sorts of great patterns and colors by the sheet. I like using them for these pouches because they are more sturdy than the regular felt....and they add some texture!
And, In case you were wondering how to make these glorious little pouches, no worries because they are super duper easy! I just cut the felt to size (whatever size you want), folded it in half and used embroidery thread and stitched the sides together by hand. For the larger pouch I used a whole sheet of felt and just folded it in thirds and stitched. no cutting involved! well, except the one shown is has an envelope flap. I had to cut that. but i made another one that is just straight across. see...easy! I added some self adhesive velcro squares for the closure on some of them. And then just personalize it by adding whatever little design you want. I guess you could put receipts, chapstick, compact, keys or anything else that'll fit to help keep your purse organized. I really would like to make some and add a zipper...that would be more practical.
I also made a cell phone holder that I use all the time (kinda dorky, yes! but i love it...). I can't seem to find the pictures I took of that right now so Ill have to post them when I find them later....or take more.
oh! and I found this great black and white houndstooth felt at Hancock Fabric! I cant wait to make some things with this! I was just playing around and made these little bow clips.
I've been thinking of other designs I could put on the pouches and so far my list consists of:
any more suggestions???
