The beauty of sewing your own zip pouch is that, with a little bit of tweaking, you can use a wide variety of fabrics. I know the choices can be overwhelming, though. I’m here for you!
It’s important to not skip topstitching when sewing a zip pouch, since this is what keeps the fabric from getting caught in the zipper. You do have three options to choose from, though! Here’s a quick tutorial on each one 🙂
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!
This tutorial is part of the “Build a Zip Pouch Series”, giving you the skills you need to sew custom zip pouches in a variety of styles and sizes. A basic zip pouch pattern is great to master then use as a springboard into other custom pouches. At 8″ x 4.5″, this one is the perfect size for pencils, makeup brushes, or to organize smaller objects slipped into your purse.
With the Stand Firm Zip Pouch pattern, you’ll receive everything you need from designing your own lining fabric to sewing a zipper for the first time if you’re new to sewing. It’s a quick and simple sew, but has such a personalized result!
