Felt flower pouch for a fellow crafter

This project is a birthday gift for my sister-in-law Gigi, who sews beautiful things like these:

A stripey-flowery linen bag, which folds up into it’s inner pocket.

A roll-up pen case in the best color combo ever – yellow and gray:

Speaking of gray, when I saw the plain heather gray felt pouch in Landmark, I knew it would be perfect for a DIY project.

What you need:

  1. Pouch
  2. Felt flowers and leaves (Learn how to make felt flowers here.)
  3. Glue gun
  4. Scratch paper or plastic

Step 1: Insert scratch paper or plastic inside the pouch. This will help in choosing the placement (don’t stick it in the bulkiest part of the pouch), and to prevent any glue from seeping through the fabric.

Step 2: Glue the thin leaves onto the thick leaves, then glue the flower. I used two sizes and colors for the leaves to add depth. Then glue the whole set onto the pouch. And that’s it!

Here’s how I wrapped my gift:

Got the idea from Pinterest/this blog. You need kraft paper, colorful round sticker labels, and ribbon. For the tag, I used this super cool sewing-themed washi tape that my brother Gab gave me.

So simple, but so pretty!
