Pretty Me Up// No-Sew Pretty Pouch DIY!

We all know we have that little girl inside us that gets us bubbly during the high points in life, so this no-sew darling of a pouch is just for that special inner youngster in you or the little girl in your family.Plus, it's made from scrap fabric! What's not to love? :)
It's great to stow in just about anything. Makeup, jewelry, stationery, knick-knacks and the sorts! I decided that I wanted to gift one to my little cousin sister, so I began working as soon as the idea struck, this is that easy! I promise!

Here's what you need!
1. Begin by lining the wrong side of your scrap fabric with duct tape. You'll want to do the same to both the fabric scraps.
2. Here's what your scraps should look like after you make the "duct tape lining".
3. Get your stapler fired up and staple along in as-a-straight line as possible along the both the smaller sides of the rectangles and one longer side. This will leave you with one edge open which would be used to insert your belongings!
4. Like in the picture below, cover all the stapled edges with some more duct tape because we don't want all those spiteful staples poking our fingers everytime!
5. Add the adhesive velcro on the inside open edges and adhesive lace onto the outside open edges as a trim. If you don't have adhesive lace, just use fabric glue/ liquid stitch to secure the lace!
And we're ready!
Here's how I gave this to my little cousin. With the cute stationery inside!
Nothing like a cute eraser decked with sweet washi tape!
And some fabulous washi tape-d pencils to match!
And my cousin's reaction? Priceless. "You MADE THIS? MAYYYY-DE?!"
I'm currently swooning over that lace detailing. You can get lace like that at cutetape.com. They have the most delicious washi tape designs as well! And nope, this aint no sponsored post ladies!

Here's something sweet for you to pin!
