This is a very simple sewing pattern that we used as an iPad or other tablet computer sleeve, but you could easily use it as a little pouch or folder.
Always keep your scissors for cutting cloth and felt separate from your all-purpose scissors, and make sure no one else in the family uses them for general crafts. That will keep them sharp.

You could use any colour. We went for the classic black and white of Apple products
If you run out of pins, you can also use needles.
The red embroidery thread
This part takes some concentration
It's always a good idea to keep all your equipment close to hand.
These are really simple stars made with two triangles of felt. My 8-year old managed to cut these completely by herself. I attached them together with a few stitches.
Initials are always a good idea to personalise an item
Grandma was enlisted to help with the button.
It's probably a good idea to put some newspaper down, unlike me!
Luckily for me, my daughters both have the same initials, so they can now share the cover.
Go on and be creative. Why not leave me a note in the comments box with what you make with your felt?
