Step One: Take your piece of felt and mark with chalk how big you would like it to be. To help with sizing, place a pencil or pen next to it.

Step Three: With your left over felt cut out a rectangle the same width as the rectangle you previously cut and slightly shorter than your pencil or pen. This will be the pocket.
