Essential zipper pouch – free pattern

All posts may contain affiliate links.

Free sewing pattern for simple zipper pouch - I love the pieced front on this one. I've got lots of fabric scraps that aren't big enough for anything else so I'm going to give this cute bag a try. Looks easy.


This is a lovely little staple pouch to carry around essentials and not lose them in the bottom of the handbag. We love a simple zipper pouch to sew and the bright cheery colors and pieced design on this one caught our eye.

Quick to sew, easy to sell or give, and this one especially is useful for using up smaller pieces of fabric that aren’t bit enough for other bag projects.
