ways to rid yourself of 30 yards of felt #3: make a gift pouch

i trust that everyone had a fantastic christmas.  i intend to post something about ours, but we'll see.
for my third installment on "ways to rid yourself of 30 yards of felt"... make a gift pouch. with a button.

like this:

just cut a rectangular piece of felt, and fold one end upward so that there is sufficient amount left for a flap.

sew up the sides with a generous seam allowance. trim with pink shears. you can also cut the flap to add some interest.

fold the flap in half (vertically), and make a small slit for the button hole. sew on the button to the top part of the pocket, using the button hole as a guide.

an alternative for little gifts or treats... something to think about come valentine's day?
original felt stash estimate: 30 yards
last felt stash estimate: 20 yards*
current felt stash estimate: 11 yards*... meaning i haven't made any progress

goal: 5 yards or less

*my estimates are most likely completely wrong.

why am i doing this? see this post.  have a happy new year!
