Coupon Pouch

One thing my mom always taught me was to clip the coupons. Now, I have coupons coming out of every pocket of every coat I own, every wallet I have, every pocket of every purse, my checkbook, and all over my apartment. I decided it was time to make me a coupon pouch.

It looks slightly messy, but unless I'm sewing something important, like curtains or a gift, I usually get a little lazy with my technical ability.

All I need now is a button or some type of closure (possibly velcro?) and some coupons to fill this thing up! Though, I might try making a nicer one in the future.
