Jewelry Pouch How-To

1. Print template.

2. Cut a 5 1/4-inch piece of Ultrasuede. Make a fold at 2 3/4 inches and press.

3. Use pinking shears to create a decorative edge on the shorter half, as shown in the template.

4. Sew a crystal to the shorter half, as marked by a small circle on the template.

5. Cut a 3-by-3-inch square from Ultrasuede. Use pinking shears to create a decorative edge on one side.

6. Make a line of fabric glue along long edges of the folded Ultrasuede piece. Lay square on short side of fold, with pinked edge along pinked edge. Fold the other half of pouch over and secure to other side of square.

7. Cut a heart in fuchsia or pink Ultrasuede. Use a screw punch to make a hole at the tip of the heart, as shown in the template.

8. Using fabric glue, attach the top of the heart to the back top of the pouch. Fold over to create a flap, and put crystal through hole to secure.
