If you need a great way to use up small scraps of your precious fabrics then this will be a great project for you. You can make some Easy Zipper Pouches in five different sizes.
These beautifully simple zipper pouches are super-practical and versatile and have a wide range of uses, from a little coin or notions purse to a large project zipper bag. They have large bases for protection, which are strong and sturdy.
The separate base allows you to mix and match your fabrics. You may wish to use a solid color fabric, or something like vinyl, cork, KraftTex, or similar for the bottom of the bag, and then a pretty print for the top.
The designer has made her project with no fussy zipper tabs, providing simple instructions for inserting a zipper in a straightforward way, making sure you get the perfect result. Her pouches are fully lined using an easy method so there are no exposed seams inside.
The five Easy Zipper Pouches have the following approximate finished dimensions (width by height by depth):-
- Xsmall = 6¼” by 4″ by 2″.
- Small = 7¼” by 4½” by 2″.
- Medium = 8¼” by 5½” by 2½”.
- Large = 9¼” by 6″ by 3″.
- Xlarge = 10¼” by 6½” by 3¼”.
This project is perfect for an improving beginner who has knowledge of basic sewing techniques and who is familiar with using a sewing machine. Some experience of inserting zippers is helpful but not essential.
