4. Create a tab on the pouch flap by sticking two felt hearts back-to-back, so that they sandwich the lower edge of the flap between them, as shown. Your child can grasp this heart tab whenever he or she wants to open the pouch.

5. Attach one half of the Velcro fastener to the underside of the tab heart and the other half to the corresponding place on the pouch.

6. Now close the pouch and let your child decorate it by sticking on additional felt hearts.
