Tutorial: Handmade Gift Pouch
After spending hours, days or weeks working on a special handcrafted project, it’s hard sometimes to decide on that special packaging that will make a handcrafted gift even more special… Here’s a tutorial for a little pouch such as the ones I send my Wee Booties in. I use some colored meshy tulle fabric with an interesting texture (plus it’s see-though so you can actually see what’s inside) but you could use just about any kind of fabric as long as it doesn’t fray, like felt for instance !
What you’ll need:
– enough of your main fabric + a tiny piece of contrasting fabric for label
– cardboard to cut template in
– pinking shears
– contrasting yarn, ideally mercerised cotton
– darning needle
– pen / pencil
– 2 rather large beads
NB: Feel free to email me with comments & suggestions (english is not my native language so feedback on that will be appreciated !)
