- fabric (3″ x 8″) swatch
- needle and thread (a sewing machine makes this project lightning fast, but isn’t necessary)
- straight pins
- 2 inches of 1″ wide velcro
To begin, cut your fabric into a 3×8″ rectangle (I’ve had this ruler since grade school in case you were wondering).
Fold each of the short ends over by 1/2 inch and sew down the center of the fabric, 1/4 inch from the fold.
Repeat on the other end.
Now, with the good side of the fabric toward you, pin the velcro to the middle of the fabric. Make sure that one side of the velcro (for instance, the fuzzy side) is up while the other (the sticky side) is down. They should be overlapping quite a bit and sticking to each other now. Baste the velcro in place and remove pins.
Fold one side up (back side of the fabric will be exposed) about 1/2 inch beyond the velcro. Now, fold the other side over as well so that it overlaps the first “flap” by about 1 inch.
Sew along both edges of the pouch about 1/4 inch from the edge.
Now, flip the right sides of the fabric out. Be sure to use a knitting needle or something pointed to push out the corners of the pouch so they’re square. And the pouch is done.
