Take Note zipper pouch (free)

All posts may contain affiliate links.


A zipper bag like no other. We can pretty much say you won’t have sewn a zipper bag with this method before, but wow, does it create a neat finish!


Possibly the easiest zipper pouch you will ever make. Perfect for beginners, there are no fiddly zipper tabs to worry about with the ‘Take Note’ pouch. The instructions include lots of easy to follow steps accompanied by clear step by step pictures.

At 23cm x 10cm (9″ x 4″) with a wider base, it is perfect for pencils, brushes and even crochet hooks.

The pattern uses very minimal fabric for the outer so is perfect for using up those smaller offcuts you’ve been saving.

I would recommend something such as linen or cotton for the outer main section to ensure you get those perfect corners unless you are a whizz with cork. The top contrast band lends itself well to cork, vinyl or fabric. The lining itself is just one piece and best used with non-directional fabric. And that’s it,  just 4 pieces to make your very own ‘Take Note’ zipper pouch.

Sizing info:
Finished size 23cm x 10cm (9″ x 4″)
