Tissue Pouch Tutorial

After going through all my school supplies, I realized I needed a pack of tissues to put in my school bag. However being the frugal and eco-savvy person that I am, I decided to make a tissue pouch. This way I can reuse it, and keep my tissues in a clean place.

If you are looking to make your own, I find a great tutorial on

iPod Touch Case Tutorial

A while ago I saw a really cute iPod Case tutorial on and I finally decided to try it out, and share it with you all. 

A Button
Needle and Thread or a Sewing Machine 

Start off by folding your felt piece in half. Draw and cut out a rectangular piece of felt that is about 2cm larger than your phone or iPod with the bottom on the folded side. Then create a strap that is half the width and length of your phone/iPod pouch and place it on the folded line. Cut. 

Stitch the sides of your strap. You can choose to do any decorative stitch. For instance I did a long zigzag stitch. You can also stitch the top and the bottom. However I choose not to because I wanted an unfinished look.

Using your machines instructions, sew a buttonhole into one of the ends of the strap. 

Sew the button onto the front of the pouch. I sewed mine 5cm from the top. (The length of my pouch was 15cm and to get 5cm I divided it by 3)

Sew the strap to the back part of the pouch. It should match up to the bottom of the button on the other side.

Sew the sides of the pouch together

...and voilà you are now the proud owner of a iPod pouch/case.
