Pocket Pouch

Sent in by:
Katy of Charlotte, NC 


What you need for this ZOOMdo:
  • piece of felt (you can use any size piece of felt you want, depending on what size you want your Pocket Pouch to be)
  • crayon
  • ribbon
  • scissors
What you do for this ZOOMdo:

  1. First, cut your felt into a circle. A good way to make the circle is to trace around a plate or a bowl with a crayon. Then cut out the circle.

  1. Take your scissors and cut a short slit about a 1/2 inch from the edge of the circle. If you're not allowed to use scissors, ask an adult for help.
  2. Continue cutting slits around the circle, leaving about two inches between each slit.

  1. Take a piece of ribbon and weave it in and out of the slits. Make sure the ends of the ribbon are on the outside of your pouch.
  2. Put your things in it, pull the ribbon tight, tie it into a bow, and put it in your pocket. Now, you can be on your way!
