DIY No-Sew Leather Pouch

DIY No-Sew Leather Pouch
January 27, 2012 Alison Faulkner

A couple hours before I left for Alt Summit, I realized I didn’t have anything to put my business cards in. I didn’t love the visual image of me rummaging through my giant bag to hand out cards, and I also wanted a safe place to put the cards I received. Using some supplies I had on hand, I put together this little leather pouch. It ended up working perfectly.

And if you’re not in the business card phase of life, I think this leather pouch makes a quick little gift. Perhaps even a Valentine!? You could stuff it with nail polish, some treats, or just a love note.


It’s super quick, and there’s no sewing involved! So tune in for THE ALISON SHOW!

As always, let me know if you have any questions, or need any help finding supplies!

    Alison, I just have to say….you make me happy. You are too cute! I love your ideas.

    Also, I wanted to tell you in church on Sunday, but you were a little MIA last week…. 🙂 The Christmas cookies you made were AMAZING! Brian and I debated for a while if you made them or bought them. I can't believe you spent so much time decorating cookies! They were super tasty too! Thank you! Someday I hope to be as artistic as you. 🙂

    Oh, and I don't know how you have the time to be a mom, craft, AND make a video of your craft. Amazing.

    however, i wanted to make some of the leather crafts and had SO MUCH TROUBLE finding where to purchase leather. do you have any suggestions? i wanted some of the supple and the veggie tanned for different projects. thank you! 🙂
