Bracelet Fastener Travel Pouch

by Noreen Doll.

(Crafty Journal)

Make a fun, sturdy travel pouch for your bracelet fastening tool, using a pot holder.

It’s quick and easy to make, and will last a long time. And you can often find pretty pot holders in the Dollar Store.

I found these in a 2-pack for $1.00. They had a pretty design on one side and were plain on the other side, so I could make 2 different bracelet fastener travel pouches.

Because there is very little sewing, you could sew these by hand if you don’t have a sewing machine. It took me longer to find a matching color of thread than it did to put in a few hand stitches!

Or you could try using hot glue on the edges if you don’t want to sew them.

What You Need

Pot Holder

Needle and Thread or Sewing Machine


What You Do

1 Fold the pot holder in half as shown.

2. On the left edge, stitch from the fold, across the opening, to just around the corner. Back stitch a few stitches if you’re using a sewing machine.

3. Stitch across the right edge the same way, and just around the corner.

4. Fold the potholder loop across the opening to see where the button needs to go.

5. Attach the button far enough from the edge that you have to stretch a bit to put the loop around it. If the button is too close to the edge, the loop won’t stay fastened.

What You Need

Pot Holder

Needle and Thread or Sewing Machine

1. Fold the pot holder in half with the loop at the top.

2. Stitch across the bottom and all the way up the side. Back stitch at each end of the stitching.

Leave the top open.

3. The bracelet fastener travel pouch is done.


You could decorate the pot holder before you stitch it, by adding an initial, flower, or buttons.
