Beachcomber Pouch (2 styles)

All posts may contain affiliate links.


A handy zipper bag to sew, with a number of different options included in the same pattern. Great for cosmetics and storage, but also cute as a clutch bag.


The Beachcomber Pouch is another fantastic pattern in the Beachcomber Collection, which features a clutch, coin purse, and tote bag. It’s super useful for storing craft supplies, pencils, cosmetics, electronic cords and is perfectly sized! As a fun bonus, this includes an Add-On option for omitting the gusset and using a boxed bottom if you prefer.

Skill level:
This pattern is for Advanced Beginners. 

The pattern includes:
• full size pattern pieces
• a Cutting List (to use instead of the included rectangular pattern pieces – to save the trees!)
• colorful and clear diagrams for most steps
• small notes section on every couple of pages
• an A1 copy-shop file
• Layers to conveniently print pieces for interfacing only
• Labels to keep track of your cut pieces

Sizing info:
7″W x 6½”H x 3½”D

Recommended fabrics: I recommend using quilting cotton but if other materials are used such as cork or vinyl, I suggest not using woven interfacing on those pieces.

Fabric & Woven Interfacing Requirements: (measurements are approximate and don’t account for directional and/or fussy cutting)
Fabric 1 : 1/4 yard
Fabric 2 : 1/4 yard
Fabric 3 : 1/4 yard
Woven Interfacing (20” wide) 1 yard
