Perfect for toting baubles, lipstick, useless receipts or school supplies. It works equally well thrown in a larger bag to keep your tiniest belongings super organized or as a ultra-chill version of a wallet. Just fill it with a few bucks when you need to run across the street for a coffee and a bagel. Fill it with sweet treats for mother's day.

Print your Triangle Pattern and choose which pattern you’d like. Or just go without the pattern and start stitching whatever you’d like.
Cut out your pattern so that it is small enough to put inside your pouch.
Place it inside the pouch and position it how you’d like it.
Using a pencil (or tailor’s chalk) trace the pattern onto the muslin fabric. Stretch the fabric taut while tracing to keep all your lines straight. Once you’ve got the pattern traced remove the paper pattern.
When you are ready to start stitching your pouch should look like this.
Cut your thread. We used about 1.5 yards.
Thread your needle and knot your thread.
Starting at one bottom corner and working your way up begin to stitch. A running stitch works great.
Stitch along each drawn line.
Stitch the exteriors of the triangle first.
Then come back and stitch the interior lines.
Work your way to the top of the pouch as you stitch.
Once you’ve stitched each triangle, knot your thread on the interior of the pouch with a double knot.
Snip excess thread.
Start piling in your odds and ends.
