The envelope pouch is very simple to make. The outside of the pouch and the lining are each one piece of fabric – the lining is sewn to the outside fabric before sewing the sides so you don’t have the trouble of sewing in a separate lining. All seams have finished edges. The pouch has two flap variations – one that is a little narrower at the bottom which leaves room for a ribbon or fabric handle to be attached and a second flap design which covers the entire top of the pouch. The pouch can be assembled with four different types of closures – a ribbon loop with button, a horizontal ribbon (the flap slides under the ribbon), a ribbon tie, and a button with buttonhole. The pouch can be made as a flat envelope or with a bottom, making it more dimensional. The size of the finished pouch is 7” tall by 8 1/4” wide.

Very cute! I actually made one to use for my Kindle Fire Tablet! It was a perfect fit. I thought this was a great, inexpensive pattern and it was easy to create.
Medium to heavyweight Cotton fabric – one 11” x 21” rectangle for outside of pouch, one 11” x 21” rectangle for pouch lining, an additional 1/8 yard of fabric is needed if making pouch with fabric handle
TIP: It is recommended to make either the outside of the pouch or the lining from fabric that is a little heavier so pouch will be more sturdy – if you are working with two medium weight fabrics, you may want to fuse lightweight interfacing to the wrong side of the outside fabric to make pouch more sturdy.
