The Essential Pouch sewing pattern in four sizes

This pouch, the Essential Pouch is a great project for a beginner sewer, and a quick and stress-free sew for someone more experienced. 

The designer has been very flexible giving instructions on how to make the Essential Pouch in four different sizes. Each one is perfectly balanced and proportioned to look just right no matter which size you choose.

The approximate finished sizes (width on the bottom, height, depth) for each of the pouches are as follows:

  • Small – 5 ½” by 3 ½” by 1 ½”
  • Medium – 7″ by 5″ by 2″
  • Large – 8 ½” by 6″ by 2 ½”
  • Extra-large – 8 ¾” by 7″ by 3″

Don’t have a printer? No worries with this pattern because it’s a measure and cut pattern, which means you don’t need to print out (and tape together) paper templates. Just measure, mark and cut the pattern right there on the fabric. We recommend a quilting ruler, rotary cutter and Frixion pens (heat erasable fabric markers).
