for my third installment on "ways to rid yourself of 30 yards of felt"... make a gift pouch. with a button.
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!
