Fanciful Felt Pouches



Sew a functional felt pouch to store a small mirror, spare change or a notepad in your purse. These pretty little pouches require minimal sewing skills and make great gifts. This project comes to us compliments of Heidi Borchers for Inspired at Home.

Listen to the audio of this project. (mp3)

Sewn Felt Pouch with Embellishment


  • Disappearing ink pen
  • Scissors
  • Felt
  • Embroidery Floss
  • Embroidery needle
  • Sewing machine (optional)
  • Decorative button (for closure) or snap
  • Embellishments – silk or velvet leaves, embroidered and beaded appliqués, crochet flowers, decorative accents
  • Mirror – 2-1/2” round
  • Pattern


  1. Print pattern on plain paper. Enlarge or reduce as desired. Transfer pattern to felt. Cut along pattern line.
  2. Fold along pattern folding lines to create pouch and flap. Stitch by machine or blanket stitch by hand along edge using photo as guide.
  3. Stitch snap or button closure in place.
  4. Glue embellishments in place. Let glue dry.

Heidi’s Designer Tip:

  1. You can make lots of great pouches from this technique. Change the size and the shape and create wallets, lipstick holders, checkbook covers and more!

I wasn't able to right click on the link, but I did follow the link, and had the same problem with no print buttons. What I did was hold down the Ctrl key and hit p, for print. Then it should automatically print.
