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.
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
