Something I’ve been making for the longest time, and have basically perfected, are these little coin pouches. They’re pretty cute, easy to make, and a sorta nice thing to give as a gift, too! I wasn’t sure what I was going to post about today, but since I hadn’t made a pouch in ages, and I had never posted a DIY here at all, I might as well show you how I make them!
Also: If anything doesn’t make sense, or if you’re confused, ask me your question in the comments, and I’ll try and get back to you as soon as I can!
What You’ll Need
- Some material
- A length of thin ribbon (I had to cut mine in half)
- A needle (or two, if you are liable to lose one, like me)
- A scissors
First, fold your material in half so the patterned side (if there is one) is facing inwards, and mark out a rectangle. Then, add another, shorter rectangle of the same width on top. This will be the shape of your pouch!
And, when you’re confident that your stitches will hold, turn your pouch inside out!
Try to poke out the corners a little more than I did here.
(Optional) The next step involves sewing on one side of your pouch without sewing it shut, so it might be helpful to put a piece of card into it, as a preventative measure.
Start your stitch in the top-left corner of your pouch…
And… There ya go! Your own, handmade little pouch!
