Introduction: How to Sew a Pouch
This pouch can hold different little things.
note: you could make this without the sheep, with a different design on the front, with a different material, or with your own twist. This is just how I made mine.
Step 1: Supplies
My main material is an old t-shirt
The body of the sheep is from a sock (a clean sock that i kept some of the fabric from)
The head, hoofs, and ear of the sheep is from an old t-shirt scrap
Sharpie marker (black)
(sorry i didn't take a picture of all of the materials together before i made it)
Step 2: Cut Out a Rectangle
Cut out a rectangle for your main material.
Make sure that the rectangle is a good size to fold 2 times. (look at the pictures to see what i mean)
Step 3: Making the Sheep
I made the sheep first, so I would know what color thread I would be using. If you don't want a sheep or animal or any extra thing then you can skip to step 4.
For my sheep I cut out a cloud like shape from an old (clean) sock that was green and black. Then I cut out an oval, 2 rectangles, and a triangle for the head, hoofs, and ear.
Then I sewed them on using a running stitch (i believe that is what kind of stitch it is)
I also added details to the sheep using a black sharpie marker.
Step 4: Sewing the Rectangle
I used a blanket stitch around the rectangle (except the bottom) while it was folded once.
I used 2 threads to highlight the stitch. I used green and white (the sheep gave the color ideas)
I started at the bottom right, then sewed all the way around (up, then left, then down) to the bottom left.
(yes at the top you are not sewing 2 pieces of cloth together. the stitch is just for the style)
Step 5: More Sewing
Now you are going to do more blanket stitching at the opening to make it more noticeable.
I used light green and blue-green thread for more style.
I went from right to left, but left to right is fine (whatever floats your boat)
Step 6: Button
Last is the button. I just cut a slit in the flap and sewed around it for a while. Then I sewed on the button behind the slit (on the fabric behind it). Then you can close the pouch (using the button).
Then the pouch is done :D
