St. Patrick’s Padded Pocket Rosary Pouch
St. Patrick’s day is just around the corner and most of us forget that the day is a solemn religious holiday that commemorates the death of St. Patrick. So for this occasion I decided to make a St. Patrick’s Padded Pocket Rosary Pouch that you can use all year round to carry your rosary and your pocket rosary prayer book with you wherever you go. This is a simple beginners sewing project so I encourage everyone to give this one a try.

What you will Need:
- 1/4 yd. Outer fabric
- 1/4 yd. Lining fabric
- 1/4 yd. Fusible fleece
- 1 Heavy Duty Snap
- Remnant of ribbon
- 1/2″ Swivel hook
- Small Spring Clip
- Shamrock charm
- My pocket rosary
Step 1: St. Patrick’s Padded Pocket Rosary Pouch
Cut out 5″ x 9″ pieces of outer fabric, lining fabric, and fusible fleece. Round the ends of one end of each of the pieces to be used as the flap.
Step 2: St. Patrick’s Padded Pocket Rosary Pouch
Fuse the fleece to the wrong side of the outer fabric. Place the lining fabric right sides together with the outer fabric. Place a 2 1/2″ piece of ribbon through a 1/2″ swivel clip and a small spring clip. Lineup the ribbon with the raw edges of the pouch so the swivel clip faces inside. Pin. Stitch around the exterior using 1/4″ seam allowance and leaving a small opening for turning.
Step 3: St. Patrick’s Padded Pocket Rosary Pouch
Turn to right sides out and press. Top stitch all the way around closing the opening you left for turning.
Step 4: St. Patrick’s Padded Pocket Rosary Pouch
Fold the bottom half of the pouch up toward the top and sew along the sides creating the pouch.
Step 5: St. Patrick’s Padded Pocket Rosary Pouch
Add the Snap following manufacturers direction. I added mine 2″ in from the side and 1″ down from the top of the pouch and 2″ in from the side and 1/2″ down from the top of the middle of the pouch. This secures the pouch firmly.
