DIY Quilted Coupon Pouch by Allie Ann Designs

Hello readers! I'm back with the first DIY I'll be sharing with you. It is a coupon pouch or it could also be used as a wallet.

To start, I sewed (24) 2.5 inch squares together with quarter-inch seam allowances. It will be a rectangle that is 4 squares by 6 squares.

Next, add batting and backing then quilt as desired. I quilted straight lines a quarter-inch on both sides of every seam of the pieced block. You'll notice I serged the edges of my block, but it isn't necessary.
Now you will need to cut out as many 1.5 inch stripes you need to add binding around the block depending on the length of the fabric you're using(I used extra scraps).
Sew your binding around the block with a quarter-inch seam allowance, mittering the corners with care. Then fold the fabric other and hand sew the other side of the binding to the "mini quilt."(Bind it the same way you would bind a quilt). With the binding finished, you will have a mini quilt like the one below.

Fold up the piece with right side up for the pocket and sew it down a quarter-inch in from the edge, then hand sew velcro to the top of the pocket and the bottom of the flap that folds down to creat the pouch and you're down.

 Now fill it up and enjoy!
