Fanciful Felt Pouches

By: Heidi Borchers for Inspired at Home
Fanciful Felt Pouches
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. One of the best thing about using felt projects to protect small items is that the felt is thick enough and soft enough to ensure that your item stays safe and unscratched. Consider crafting and sewing these small DIY bags before giving a gift. This felt craft would be perfect for gifting and storing jewelry pieces.

Designer's Tip: 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!

Thanks NPS, I had to right click on the pattern also. Then click on open. Thanks for the tip. Betty

Just the little extra guest gift I was looking for-Thanks!

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.

I was able to print the pattern by doing the following Right click on PATTERN Then click on "Print Target"

When I click on the pattern it comes up full screen and there is nothing to click on to print the pattern out.

These little bags are perfect for so many uses!

How do i print the pattern? I can bring it up by clicking on "Pattern" but have no print key in which to print it. Please help. I really would like to make some of these.

Perfect gift to make for those who already have everything but....this! Also You can make an eye glass one you know those extra large sunglasses that everyone is now wearing too!
