I cut it out of paper to make a pattern, but the directions are confusing. Please redo directions.

Cut a rectangle 3 1/2 x 5. Then cut 1/4 of it away, so you have cut off a 1 3/4 x 2 1/2 inch piece.You now have an L shaped piece. Fold the 21/2" side over to the 5" side. Stitch the bottom and 2 1/2" up the side. You can decorate the front with a felt flower or buttons. Apply Velcro to the top flap and the front of the "pouch" you made. Then cut a piece about 1" x 2". Sew 1" x1" to the top back so that 1"extra is sticking up behind the flap. Fold this over a key ring and stitch it down. That's what I figured out, anyway. Hope it helps, KimCJ

I have made several of these for gifts, and they are well liked. Instead of sewing the edges with a sewing machine, I used wool felt for the body and needle felted fiber along the edges to hold it together. I also embellished the top using felt flowers.

This is a cute idea, but there are no drawings/patterns, and the written directions are very hard for me to understand. Without a drawing of how to cut out the fabric I'm sure I'd cut off a piece I needed or leave on a piece that should have been cut off. I'd love to see a drawing for this craft, as I'd like to make several for Christmas gifts.

Instructions 2-5 are confusing. Could you make a tutorial with pictures or a video tutorial? That would be so greatly appreciated if you could :)
