Ribbon and felt pocket bracelets

We celebrated my daughter's birthday yesterday with two of her friends and a trip to the Exploritorium. After playing, snacking, and opening gifts, I gave each of the girls one of these little pocket bracelets I had made just before walking out the door. (Why plan ahead and ruin my reputation?) I had filled them with M&Ms so they would have a little surprise upon opening them.
These were really quite easy to make and I figured the girls would enjoy having a tiny pocket filled with secret treasures on their wrists. My mistake was not making the flap of the envelope/pocket longer with the button hole a little lower, allowing the pocket to expand a bit more when filled. It still works nicely for very small treasures such as 5 M&Ms, tiny notes, spare change, small jewelry items, etc. Just a thought, in case you end up making some.
These would make sweet little Easter gifts, too.
If I get around to making a more masculine version for my son, I'll post that, as well.

I love 'em. My little boy would probably like them, but there's no telling what he might keep in them....hehehe.

Love these!!! I agree - who knows what my son would put in one if he had one. Probably rocks, bugs, dirt, etc.

How fun to have a big girl now. Mine will turn 5 in December and they are looking forward to it more than I am (babies are long gone but I still can not believe we're heading towards 5 years).

Anyway, very cute but how did you attach the pocket? I can see the rest but not that. Thanks, in advance!

I adore these! Been wanting to make some kind of fabric wristlets for my little girl students. They would love the pockets on these.

Andrea,
I sewed the pocket separately and then positioned it where I wanted it on the ribbon-I just held it in place, but it may be advisable to pin it. I stitched across the bottom of the pocket, on top of the existing stitches that created the pocket, the width of the bracelet and then I opened the flap and stitched across the back of the pocket, just over the pocket opening. Does that make any sense??
