woven envelope pouch

CREATE A SIMPLE ENVELOPE POUCH IN MINUTES USING A COLORFUL WOVEN PLACEMAT

I picked this pretty placemat up at my local dollar store. In just a few minutes I was able to stitch into a colorful and handy envelope style pouch. Don't want to use a machine to stitch up your project? Try using colorful yarn or embroidery floss to hand stitch the edges. 

Large brads are a simple tool to use for your closure. Gently poke the tines in between the woven stitches and secure on the back/inside of your pouch. Tie on a piece of ribbon and wrap to secure.
