Pocket pal! Fabric origami folded fabric character  8 pocket pouch

Pocket pal! Fabric origami folded fabric character 8 pocket pouch

 

These cute little guys are extremely useful for holding small items, like craft tools or even as a cosmetics purse. Even though I have made these before from my own pattern, these new ones are smaller and more compact, making them perfect for carrying around in a purse or bag, whilst keeping things organised and safe. Smaller they may be, but definitely no less appealing. Each and every one I make will always be different too making use of both old and new buttons to give them a funny little face.

Made simply by having two pieces of square fabric inย different colours, with a thin layer of wadding sandwiched between, then folded in an origami style to produce a total of 8 differing sized pockets. After hand stitching the flaps over the front of the pouch I then selected colourful buttons which instantly add a face feature. A very straightforward method of making a hand-twisted cord loop is an easy solution to keeping the pouch pockets closed and it also gives a little moustache for fun!

With the pouch flap open, the twisted cord loop also doubles as a little tail - So cute!
