We are a studio of jewelry loving ladies, there’s no denying it. . . more is more! One of our local “go-to” stores for on-trend fashion jewelry is Madewell. At one point their pieces came in soft felt jewelry pouches, which I have kept my stash and use them for travel. Lately they have replaced the felt pouch with a canvas one, still pretty but not as keep worthy as the former felt envelopes. Inspired by these jewelry bags we came up with our own design in a soft wool felt and gold iron-on.
The Perfect Pouch
Ideal for traveling or even gifting a piece to a friend, these DIY felt jewelry pouches are perfect for keeping your beloved bling safe. All you will need is a length of wool felt in your chosen color, thread in a matching color, pins, scissors, a needle and a measuring tape.

If you would like to label your felt jewelry pouches as we have, then you can download the designs below. Use your personal cutting machine cut gold iron-on vinyl. If you don’t have a cutting machine we have included these designs as a printable PDF which can be used with printable ink jet iron-on. Follow the instructions for applying the iron-on to your felt once you have made the pouches. Our top tip for using iron-on vinyl is to press with a hot iron until the top layer of plastic begins to crinkle. Peel off the plastic and then give the design one last press over a cotton cloth to fully infuse the material into the felt. You can use our step-by-step tutorial below to make your pretty felt pouches. Enjoy! ~ Lia

[…] 7. Felt jewellery pouches […]
Hello, these are beautiful pieces. I’d like to know what kind of wool felt did you use, what is the thickness that is needed to create the pouches?
Hi Kat! There’s a link in the post to the 1mm wool blend felt we used.
[…] totally wish I would have had time to make these adorable felt jewelry pouches from Lia Griffith before my trip, but I didn’t see them in […]
Lovely! I will embroider them instead of the iron-on option.
That is a gorgeous idea! Feel free to share pictures with me of your finished product, I would love to see it! Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org 🙂
Very stylish! I like the iron on lettering idea.
Thank you 🙂
These little bags are so classy, great way to store jewelry and to carry with. I am making some of these, will be digging in felt stash for nicest piece of felt. Boy can I ever use some of them. Will use different color of felt for certain jewelry types. With labels will be so much easier than having to look thru so many little boxes to see what’s in each one, what a bother. So especially glad you made these to share with us, Think there will be lots of felt being bought and incredible little bags being made. I was thinking maybe take photo of jewelry item to put on front of bag, print photos on some muslin or?. No guessing then.
So how are you all doing? The old man has had me chasing since Tuesday so I could really use a quiet day at home. Have one last in home physical therapy tomorrow afternoon so will try to get some more organizing done of clutter. Then next week it’s outpatient p/t, now the work REALLY begins, or else.
How did it get to be Thursday already? Phew I’m pooped out. Need a good lie down reading for while to relax me. I’m a cheap date kids. How can shopping/deciding on new vacuum be such hard work, with my hubs it’s a major decision, sheesh.
Happy weekend Now we’ll be on to Valentines day.
Happy Friday!! I am so glad the weekend is here. I agree, these jewelry pouches are absolutely wonderful, I have been really excited about them! And yes, we are just about to transition into Valentine’s day. The studio will be full of pink goodies! Can’t wait 😉
These are so classy! I love them with the labels. I, myself, would definitely use them for travel and what a thoughtful way to gift jewelry to a family member or friend. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you, I’m so glad you like them!!
