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.

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).
