I Made This: ruffled pouch for easy gifts

I have a new go-to quick and easy gift that I've been making a ton of recently:  the ruffled pouch.  There's tons of pouch tutorials out there but the one that I found the clearest and easiest to follow was the Pleated Pouch Tutorial from Skip to my Lou.

As you can see from my pictures though, I couldn't just leave well enough alone, I ended up changing the dimensions a little bit (the one in her tutorial is SMALL!) and then adding a simple ruffle to the outside.  I say - if you're going girly, go girly all the way!

These were so easy to make - seriously the hardest part was picking out the different fabric combinations for everyone that I was making them for.  After that was done I can make one in about 20 minutes.  So quick and easy!!  You can't see in my photos but they're all lined in a complimentary fabric to make them just as cute on the inside!

Even though I only have pictures of three I've made seven so far --- birthday gifts, just-because gifts, teacher gifts -- I think that everyone has a use for a cute little patch like this!
