Let's get started then. Forgive all the pictures, but sometimes I think they do a better job explaining the steps than I do.
|Ribbon not shown|
Fabrics- 3 pieces cut to 9" X 19" (outside, inside and pocket) They can be all the same or all different. For this example I did two of the paisley and one of the medallion
Felt- 1 piece cut 8"X 18" (you can cut this slightly larger, it's a bit easier, but will have a little more bulk in the seams
Ribbon- 2 pieces cut approx. 13"
Any embellishments for the front
Take the piece for your pocket and press in half, wrong sides together on the 9" length. Your finished piece should be 4 1/2" X 19"
Add any embellishments to the front of the packet. In this example I used velvet ric rac from American Crafts- yummy stuff!
Place the exterior of the packet, right side down on top of the pocket piece. Pay attention to where the embellishments are- they should be on the left side of the packet. Finally, lay the felt piece on top of everything. Pin around the edges.
The top corner may pull up a bit at first, but it will relax shortly and lay flat.
Please let me know if you have any questions, or if I can help in any way.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful Wednesday. :)
