  1. Print our template and use it to cut the three pouch pieces from stiff brown felt.
  2. For the belt loop, use a 1/16-inch hole punch to make guide holes for the thread along the short ends of the rectangle. With an embroidery needle and embroidery thread, sew two ends of the rectangle to the full oval, lining it up to match the height of the partial oval as shown.
  3. Place the partial oval on the other side of the full oval. Punch guide holes along the curved edge of the two pieces, then whipstitch the pieces together.
  4. Whipstitch around the edge of the flap.
  5. Glue or sew a button on the flap. Keep the pouch closed with adhesive Velcro dots.
