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:

  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.

Ready for the first day of Pre-School

First Day of Preschool

Because starting Pre-School is a really Big Deal…

I wanted to make my Grandson Nick a special shirt to wear on the first day.

At first, I had all kinds of silly and corny ideas…

in the end I thought maybe I should make one he’d actually wear more than once.

Thanks to some Pinterest Inspiration.

I came up with “Class of 2029”.   Sounds kind of futuristic doesn’t it?

Nick’s mommy liked it so much she wanted me to make one for his little brother.

The boys’ shirts were made using iron-on embroidered letters from Joy SA.
