Here’s a very practical zipper pouch that comes in two different sizes. It has a handy outside zipper pocket, optional card slots inside and a wristlet strap. If you chose this project then it’s a great time to work on perfecting your zipper ends too.
Marilyn Big Pouches is a BIG size cosmetic bag, clutch bag, or stationery case, or anything. It’s a very practical and useful bag.
If you have made this kind of zipper bag before, you may have found that the corners are dented or just don’t sit nicely. Well, not anymore. The designer, Imazz Patterns, shows you how to get clean square corners like the ones shown here. Yes, there’s a little secret to it!
Also, you can make this zipper pouch with no baggy lining either! The designer shows you how to make a neat lining with this pattern.
When you have finished making the Marilyn Pouch it will measure approximately:-
- Medium = 6″ (15 cm) high by 10″ (27 cm) long, along the top,
- Large = 6½” (16.5 cm) high by 11″ (29 cm) long, along the top.
What you will need to make a Marilyn Pouch:-
- ¼ yard of medium-weight cotton fabric (a fat quarter is perfect for this project),

- One 10 or 11 inches zipper,
