How we did it:

Materials List

  1. fabric
  2. ribbon
  3. scissors
  4. markers
  1. Mark out a large circle on the fabric and cut out the circle.

  2. Cut little slits every 1-1.5 inches or so around the circle. The tricky thing here is to cut close to the edge, but be careful not to cut all the way through to the edge. This might require some grownup assistance. Keeping the slits pretty close to each other is a good idea for keeping the pouch closed well.

  3. To create your drawstring, you can use ribbon to thread through the slits. This is great weaving and fine-motor practice. With the cinching of the ribbon, the pouch is complete! The girls were then off to find nature treasures to tuck into their handmade pouches.
