This velvet drawstring pouch is lined and has a round bottom which enables it to stand on its own. I made it for a man that will be dressed as a Knight this Halloween and as part of his costume he has a couple small pouches. One for his many gold coins. One for his gems. And now this larger velvet one to hold his very special dragon eggs! All of the fabric is scraps I've acquired from thrift stores...even the jeweled beads on the drawstrings. The pouch measures 7 inches high and 3 inches wide.
