Velcro Pouch Tutorial... Quick and Simple


1.
SUPPLIES
2 rectangular pieces of fabric cut the same size
male (rough) and female (smooth) strips of Velcro (hook and loop)
Interfacing (optional)



2.
About 1 1/2 inches away from the edge...
Sew the male strip of Velcro to the right side of the outer fabric .
Sew the female strip of Velcro to the right side of the inner fabric.
*Since I used very thick fabric, I did not use interfacing. If you want to add interfacing, do it now.*



3.
Lay the pieces right sides together with Velcro on opposite sides (not touching).



4.
Sew around, leaving 1/2 inch seam.  Leave a gap in the middle of one side so you can turn it right sides out.  Do not sew over the Velcro.



5.
Turn it right sides out and press with an iron.



6. 
Fold the pouch like an envelop and press with the iron.  Make sure the Velcro lines up when you close the pouch.



7.
Starting at the bottom corner, sew around three sides.  This step will also close up the side that was left open earlier to turn it.



8.
Fill the pouch with cool stuff and close it up.


I made lots of these mini pouches to keep my parents iPod accessories organized.

What a neat little pouch, I can never seem to keep things organized in my bag and about 50 of these would go a long way towards that, hehe. Thanks for the tute!

Boookmarked as well, with perfect timing, as change-purse that I kept my college id in just tore itself apart at the zipper  Tongue

Wow!  I'm so glad my tutorial has been so well received.  Cheesy I can't wait to see the pouches you all make.  Please post them! 

This idea stems from my OCD.  I'm slightly obsessed with organization.  I like to have special a pouch for everything.   Undecided

The funny thing is...My senior citizen parents have an iPod, but I don't!
