No Sew Jewelry Pouch DIY

As a photographer, I'm constantly flying all over the country. I'm always on the look out for new travel pieces that keeps my things organized, but also feels like it fits in my style. I wanted to create a small pouch I could easily keep all my jewelry in, without taking up too much space in my suitcase. 


leather piece
embroidery thread

Begin with a piece of leather 8x14 inch. 

Fold the leather over creating a pouch. With the Crop-a-Dile, punch holes all along the hem edge through both layers of the fold, making them line up perfectly.

Next, thread the sides together with embroidery thread. I used multiple different muted colors for a bohemian vibe.

Once the sides are threaded together. Cut the flap of the pouch in a curved pattern for a unique look. 

Take six strands of embroidery thread and braid them together, two pieces of embroidery thread for each section of the braid. 

Punch a hole in the top of the flap. Tie a knot at the end of the threads, pull through the hole at the top of the flap, and tie a knot at the end of the other of the braid. 

Easy as that! Enjoy!
