Step 1
Down­load and print out the tem­plate or unfold a paper enve­lope and use that as a tem­plate. Use big­ger or smaller envelopes, depend­ing on what you plan to use your pouch for. My tem­plate is made from an enve­lope that is 5.5 x 3.5 inches (14x9cm). It also includes a snout and ear shapes for a bear and fox.

Add a mag­netic but­ton clasp or any other clo­sure, such as a sim­ple but­ton or a press but­ton. Use a sharp tool to make slots and fit each snap piece in place as shown. Then glue the snout felt piece over the clasp.

Step 5
Place, pin, and stitch the ears on the back of the enve­lope, plac­ing the ears near the top so that they peek out from behind the enve­lope once it’s closed. Add some glue to keep the edges down (optional).
