Here is the FREE pattern for the wonderful Zippie Clippie pouch.

You can make lots of these pouches and they’ll have lots of uses like for example:

  • Clip one on a backpack with pencils and school supplies.
  • Clip another to your bag to hold your phone.
  • Then sew another to hold your hand sewing kit while on road trips.

 You can customize the front of this handy zipper pouch and sew it with whatever material you want: vinyl, mesh or fabric. For a pencil pouch, vinyl is probably best. Mesh is a little bit stretchy plus you can see through it, so mesh is very useful for a front-of-pouch material.

And of course, you can choose regular fabric for the front of your pouch if you don’t want it to be see-through or if you are trying to use up fabrics in your stash.
