Easy No Sew Children’s Treasure Pouch

How to Make a Children's Treasure Pouch



Here is something really easy to make with the little ones this summer.

My girls are always collecting little things and for our recent trip to San Diego, I thought it would be fun to make a little pouch for them to put all their sea shells and rocks from the Beach.

This also serves a double purpose of allowing me to limit all the little treasures they collect ;).

This is so easy to make and just requires a few supplies and this is a totally no sew project.  Use any fabric you like- my girls love dogs these days so I choose a cute little dog fabric.

This little pouch would be great to use as a wallet too if the kiddos are earning money this summer.
