DIY: Felted Jewelry Pouch

eHow Crafts Blog


This handmade felted jewelry pouch is a sweet way to keep your jewelry protected and organized while on the go.

Start with a 5 inch by 15 inch piece of soft felted wool, a little embroidery thread, some ribbon and a fun vintage earring.

The felted wool I used was from the sleeve of a thrifted lambswool and angora sweater. I washed it in hot water and dried it in the dryer to felt it. This makes the fibers tight so it won’t fray.

Start by folding the bottom up 5 1/2″ and thread your needle with the embroidery thread.

Pin the sides to keep them straight.

Then hand sew the sides of the folded area together with your favorite stitch. I love the look of this blanket stitch.

Fold down the flap, tie a pretty ribbon around it and add a special vintage clip-on earring. Thank you Great Aunt Betsy!

This would be a beautiful gift for Mother’s Day!

Happy Spring!
