I made business card holders in a similar manner to this suedette pouch in – this – blog post. And a lightweight sunglasses cover in – another post. This is a variation on those two using left-overs from a softer suedette fabric.
You need: –
- suedette or leatherette
- matching colour thread
- Stanley knife or scissors
Measure up the item for which you want to make a cover or pouch. Mark the pieces and cut with a Stanley knife running next to a ruler – or if you have a steady hand – a strong pair of scissors.
Place your two pieces together. Unfortunately you cannot pin them as that will damage the leatherette or suedette. NOTE! It is tricky trying to sew these together without the two pieces sliding apart due to the slippery lining and also the pile or nap from the suedette getting stuck to the feed dog of your sewing machine and pulling.
You need to hold both ends firmly and guide this through your sewing machine and sew slowly.
Once sewn, that’s it. Job done. Super easy to make.
I also made a pouch for my make up and hair clips which tend to move about in my bag and get damaged.
