Here’s a simple unlined zipper bag that is ideal for using up scraps and smaller pieces of your non-fraying fabrics such as leather, cork or vinyl. A video tutorial is included (see below for the video).
This storage pouch is a great way to introduce yourself to working with leather, cork or vinyl. This unlined zipper pouch is designed to sew with these non-fraying fabrics. It has a slightly curved zipper top, and the option to add a connection for a wristlet strap. If you’re familiar with these materials it’s a great way to use up scraps for a simple project!
You can accent the outside of the bag with vinyl/cork or contrasting fabric scraps if you like.
Please note that this bag is unlined but because the designer used non-fraying fabrics, there were no raw edges.
