I’ve put together cut dimensions for five of the most common zip pouch sizes. These are the sizes I make the most often, both to sell and to use personally. I hope it’s as useful to you as it is to me!
Once you know the basic zip pouch pattern, you can make a custom pouch in any style, length, width, and depth that you’d like! This post will give you the tools to figure what dimensions you’ll need to cut your fabric.

The goal of our “Build a Zip Pouch Series” is to help give you the skills you need to sew custom zip pouches in a variety of styles and sizes. Come sew with me!
