They are gorgeous! I am very impressed with how the canvas is simultaneously sturdy and soft. They have a very nice drape and a great texture. I actually already bought some more for myself to use for Christmas presents.
So I set out to find a tutorial to make the pouch, but I couldn't find anything that described exactly what I wanted. Since I was able to work out a pretty simple method, I thought I would share it with you. These are fairly large (8" x 13.5") since that is what I needed for my purpose, but you could make them any size.
|Use a 1/2" seam allowance|
I'm sorry, I forgot to get a photo of the next step so hopefully you can visualize it from the photo below. Fold up the bottom of the fabric so that it has a 3.5" overlap with the folded down top fabric.
The the pouch right side out and give it a little press with your iron.
And look, it's lined!
And now you have a pouch that will safely contain your things without having to use a zipper.
