Zippered Pouch

from Shiny Happy World
(9) Name: 'Sewing : Zippered Pouch
Zippered Pouch
Zippered Pouch

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • simple sewing

Pattern Description:

I cut up a lot of old clothes to reuse the fabric. I can't stand to throw anything away, and I end up turning a lot of the zippers into handy-dandy zippered pouches like this one. Make it in grown-up fabrics to hold make-up, money, membership cards, etc. Make it in kid-friendly fabrics to hold candy, money, colored pencils and a little notebook, tiny toys, rocks, etc. Why does everything I make end up holding rocks?

Anyway. . .make it in a plain fabric and fancy it up with some applique or embroidery. I chose three monsters from the Monster Mash embroidery pattern to stitch on this one. Or make it in a stunning fabric that sings on its own.

Make it up once according to the pattern and you'll have the skills to make as many as you want - in any size and shape you need.

And did I mention it's lined?
