Craft with Racaire – Project #2 – Pouch #1 – fast and easy pouch tutorial (handsewn) & how to work with “rapports”

Craft with Racaire - Project #2 - a fast and easy pouch tutorial (handsewn)

Before I introduce you the more difficult techniques and we start with the embroidered and fancy pouches, I decided to show you a simple way how to make a hand-sewn pouch for yourself, for a gift, your favorite card game,… or whatever you want to store in it.

It also makes a rather fast and easy but also impressive gift, especially when you add some bling (like self-made tassels) to it.

The following tutorial is the fastest and most “easy” pouch tutorial I can imagine when it comes to hand-sewn pouches. It is suitable for beginners to sewing as well as for advanced sewers. For the beginners among you I will soon add some information about period sewing techniques and stitches you will need to sew and complete this project.
