The zipper bag or zipper pouch is one of the first sewing patterns we master when learning to sew bags. It may be our first time sewing a zipper or it may be the type of pattern we sew again and again to try different techniques to get the perfect zipper ends that look neat without being ‘dented in.’
Endlessly useful for storage of all of our small bits and pieces, the zipper pouch sewing pattern comes in a dazzling variety of styles. Some may be simple and plain, practical and used every day. Some may be more elaborate with applique, quilting, fancy fabrics, or lacy zippers. Some tiny for use as coin purses, some flat for smaller items like pens, pencils or brushes, some that stand up on a flat bottom for cosmetics and toiletries, and some with a variety of zipper pockets inside and out that can be carried as clutch bags and wristlets.
No matter how simple or elaborate, we all enjoy sewing these essential zipper bags, and using them every day.
