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?

Excellent Awesome Beginner Pouch and Zipper Tutorial!  May 22, 2012

As a beginner, I have never installed a zipper before. This tutorial walked me through step by step and the finished project came out very nice! Thank you Shiny Happy World for teaching me to sew one project at a time!

I'm on a mission to teach people to sew, quilt, and embroider. I design patterns especially for beginners and I never release a pattern until I have videos teaching you every skill you'll need to complete the project. Have fun!
