    Now take one piece of felt (It'll be the front of your pouch) and embellish it.

    I worked on the wrong side and positioned the dragonfly where I want it to be and I drew random curls with a pen.

    Now the zipper.

    Carefully place the second piece of felt on top and sew the zipper in between them along the hole you cut on the felt.
