Valentine Pouches

Over the weekend, I found a really cute tutorial over on MADE. I changed it up a little since I don't have a serger. Instead, I used some fusible web to bond two pieces of fabric together (a cotton muslin and a cotton print). Using the fusible web helps minimize fraying, plus it also allows for a fun lining :)
After sewing the pouches, I used pinking shears to pink the edges.

I filled them with smarties and Phineas and Ferb fruit snacks.

And the most awesome dinosaurs ever that I found at the dollar store. We live in a tiny town, but it has a dollar store, and it totally rocks :)
The pouches were a huge hit, and after the candy is gone, they can be used tote around treasures. Sweet.
