Handmade wedding pouch with embroidery!

Box made by
Hello friends!
It's been a while since we've posted anything in our blog lately but we have our hands full planning a beautiful wedding in May...For this reason we decided to post a wedding DIY for all the girls who dream of a totally DIY wedding. In Greece it is used to give to all guests a wedding pouch with sugared almonds after the ceremony. Wedding pouches are a wedding "must" and they can be found in a variety of shapes, from a tulle pouch to a small jar or anything you can imagine. Today we will show you how to make a classic wedding pouch of crep-de-chine for your dreamy wedding. 

What you will need is a piece of a good quality fabric such as satin or crep-de-sin. Also, you will need some embroidery, pins, scissors etc. 

Take a ruler and draw the pattern of the pouch. Mine was 15x12 cm. Grab your scissors and cut it.
Turn the piece of fabric on the other side and your embroidery up side down. Carefully stitch the embroidery on the upper side as shown in the photo.
Now after stitching the embroidery turn the piece of fabric on the front side. This is how it will look like. 
Repeat the same process on the other piece of fabric. You will end up with two pieces. Cut the excess embroidery and lets proceed to stitching.
Start your stitching from the embroidery. Stitch both sides and the bottom.
Don't forget to finish your seam with a zigzag seam.
Fill your wedding pouch with yummy sugared almonds and wrap it around with the ribbon that matches with the colors of your wedding. Here, I used a see-through ribbon for a more classy touch. The result is a romantic wedding pouch that will impress your guests.
For the photo shoot I used this lovely heart shaped box made by
