How to Create a Beaded Bridal Pouch

A Gift for that special Bride…

Create a special pouch for the Bride-to-be to keep her wedding day jewelry safe while in

transport.  Personalize it with Joy Iron On Embroidered letters.

To make the Bridal Pouch here’s what you’ll need:

Shop Your Fav Brands at Scrapbook.com
Directions:
  1. Fold over one end of the felt approx. 4″.
  2. Sew along the edge of each side to create the pouch.
  3. Iron the beaded trim onto the opposite end of the felt by laying a fine cloth over the trim and ironing over it for 25 sec.
  4. Cut excess felt around the top of the beaded trim to create a scalloped edge.
  5. Position the letters spelling “Bride” onto the front of the pouch with the shiny side down.
  6. Cover letters with a fine cloth.
  7. With firm pressure iron cloth over the letters for 25 seconds.
  8. Turn flap of the pouch over and iron the back for an additional 25 seconds.
  9. Add Velcro to the flap to keep the pouch closed.

You can also use the beaded-iron on trim to make into a bracelet, belt or headband.

For the beaded bracelet…

  • Measure the size of your wrist.
  • Cut a piece of  felt approx. 3/4″ longer than your trim.
  • Arrange trim onto felt so that only one end has the extra felt.
  • Lay a clean soft cloth over trim and iron onto the felt.
  • Cut excess felt around the beaded trim to create a scalloped edge.
  • Add hook and loop tabs* to the end of the felt.

5 Creative Ideas for Beaded Iron On Trim

5 Creative Ideas for using Beaded Iron On Trim from Expo International.

When I received this selection of beautiful beaded trim from Expo International,

the creative wheels really started to spin.

I couldn’t narrow it down to just one project, so I created five.  (Lucky You!)

But why stop there…

Today, I’m participating with several other designers of Designer Craft Connections

for a fun Blog Hop using the trims from Expo International.

Every designer got something different, so it should be good.  (details below)

#1 Vases…

Turn a simple Dollar Tree* glass cylinder or empty cappuccino bottle in a Elegant Vase.

Spray the top of the Dollar Tree cylinder vase with Gold Glitter Spray Paint* and glue the trim onto the vase with Beacon Zip Dry Glue*.              (*affiliate link)

Try gluing  two or more pieces of beaded trim to the bottom of a empty jar or vase.

#2 Baskets

Embellish the band of a plain basket for a little extra style.

Add a even more personality by gluing iron embroidered letters.

#3 Festival Bracelets

Have fun this summer with easy to make Festival Bracelets.

  • Measure the size of your wrist.
  • Cut a piece of denim or felt approx. 3/4″ longer than your trim.
  • Arrange trim onto fabric so that only one end has the extra fabric.
  • Lay a clean soft cloth over trim and iron on the fabric.
  • Add hook and look tabs* to the end of the fabric.

#4 Jazzed Up Pockets

Jazz up the pockets of jeans, shorts or jacket.

Create a special pouch for the Bride to keep the wedding day jewelry safe while in transport.
