My partner recently received this in a swap so I thought I'd do a post so you all could see.  I took a wool sweater and felted it down to make the pouch.  I then took wool roving and needle felted on a fox and a tree on the backside.  The sweater started out as an XL and shrunk down to a size my 8 year old could wear.  Funny thing is it had a few moth holes in it so when I felted it those holes got a lot bigger.  The sweater was perfect for making pouches because the holes messed up bigger pieces.

The first and last picture is washed out.  My camera is a very cheap one.   Tongue  The middle picture is more true to color.
