Sweet and Simple Mini Pouch - Ashley from Cherished Bliss

Today's guest is the uber talented chica behind the blog Cherished Bliss.  I first became aware of her blog during Yarn it All when I featured her insanely brilliant yarn tote:
(The other side has pockets for all the hooks and needles)
I couldn't stay away after seeing that.

Hi Everyone! I'm so excited to be over here today! I'm Ashley, and I blog over at Cherished Bliss.
This is such a fun series, I always love giving handmade gifts! Although sometimes there just isn't time! So today I will be sharing with you a super easy tutorial. If you have been thinking about learning to sew, this would be a great project to practice with! This takes less than 30 minutes to make, that's my kind of handmade gift!

I use mine for yarn needles in my Yarn Tote Bag! But you could use it for anything!

{Here is what you will need}
- 2 pieces of fabric roughly 12.5” x 5.5”
- a button or velcro
- and your basic sewing materials (thread, sewing machine, scissors)
1. Take your 2 rectangles and sew them right sides together with 1/4” seam allowance. Leave a small space in the bottom for turning.
Step 1
2. Clip corners and turn fabric right side out. Press. Press down your seam in the space you left open. We will top stitch this later.
Step 2
3. Tri fold your rectangle and press.
Step 3
4. Then you are going to leave the “flap” up and top stitch around the 2 sides and top. I chose not to top stich across the bottom. This creates the pouch.
Step 4
5. Now just make a button hole on the flap and sew on your button and your done!

Easiest Pouch Ever right?
