diy simple tied pouch

Away from home and having diy withdrawals? What's a girl with no supplies to do? Why, she hits the local five & dime (all you kiddos, that means Walmart) to create a simple, "i got no supplies" cash and cards pouch!

Note: I'm making it with a divider inside (brown). You can easily omit the inside brown.

  5. This is ingenious and super cute! (We also have bad scissors, can't find the good ones ever, so instead of cutting through things, we now refer to it as "chewing")
