Pattern Description:

These pouches are fast, easy, and satisfying to sew! Best of all, this sewing pattern includes pattern pieces to make them in FIVE sizes.

Mini- Perfect for gift/debit/credit/business cards.
Small - Smaller square shaped pouch good for tiny random bits floating around the bottom of your bag.
Tall - This was designed to hold a zine, but will also work for an iPad mini, or other similar sized gadgets.
Square - Another square shaped pouch but in a larger size.
Medium - Good for many different eReaders, or to use as a small clutch.

The pouch portion has two vertical pleats which give the body room to expand to hold quite a few things. They also add a nice visual detail to the front.

The smaller sizes can be made with fabric scraps, and all use only five different supplies you probably already have in your sewing room. All sizes, except "Square", can be made with a Fat Quarter of fabric, or the amounts shown in the pattern supply table in the pattern document.

The instructions are for making them with a simple and convenient VELCRO closure, but of course you can make them with magnetic snaps, buttons, or any other closure you please (instructions not included for other types of closures).
