Trixi Symonds, author of Sew Together Grow Together, guest blogs at My Poppet with a tutorial showing how to make a simple envelope pouch. The sewing is very easy and uses both machine stitching and hand stitching. It’s a small size; she suggests using it to hold jacks or other small toys. You could also increase the size and make this into a clutch style purse. Get her tutorial at My Poppet.
