This is the COSYpouch pdf sewing pattern from the designer The In Complete Stitch.
The designer says her COSYpouch pattern includes three sizes, small, medium and large, and three colour-blocking layouts; diagonal, wave and curve, along with the option to just keep it simple.
This beginner level pattern is a delightful scrap buster and a super skill builder.
The COSYpouch relies on the use of quilting, along with lofted interfacing or a couple of layers of cotton batting, to give some gentle structure to the finished pouch and has a bound finish to the top.
The COSYpouch measures approximately:
- Small = 12 cm (4 ¾”) diameter by 8 cm (3″) tall.
- Medium = 16 cm (6 5/16″) diameter by 11 cm (4 ⅜”) tall.
- Large = 20 cm (7 ⅞”) diameter by 14 cm (5 ½”) tall.
The designer rates her COSYpouch as a beginner level pattern. It’s a straightforward sew with a few gently challenging elements depending on your sewing experience; mainly in relation to sewing binding, a curved base and handling a few layers of fabric. It may feel un-intuitive but the easiest version to start with would be the large size. Handling the smaller curves of the smallest size is that little bit trickier. However this comprehensive tutorial is designed to empower any beginner to tackle all elements with confidence.
So what fabrics does the designer recommend for using on her COSYpouch project? You should use a light/mid weight fabric – the same for both outer and lining fabrics. Linen, quilting cotton, light weight canvas all work! Almost any light/midweight woven fabric would be suitable, and you can certainly experiment with heavier weights too. Bear in mind that the drawstring casing will need to gather to close, so a heavier weight fabric for this element may not be suitable. This simple pattern is a fabulous canvas for playing with textures and colours!
