The Flaptastic Pouch is my first pattern, and it’s all about fun and whimsy with a big splash of practicality. It has a slim profile with a main zippered compartment large enough to carry small essentials. The clear vinyl flap zip pocket (which inspires its name) is bound with double-fold bias fabric and provides a unique way to see and store small items. A slip pocket for flat items sits safely tucked behind the clear pocket. What gives this pouch so many uses are the two back snap tabs: as a clutch they lay flat, but can be utilized with and without the strap as a crossbody bag, hip bag, or as a tote add-on (for extra organization). With three flap styles to choose from, you can create the perfect look: classic plain, glitter-filled for some extra fun, and animal-face which mixes art and sewing for an adorable novelty look!

It’s the pattern that can work for so many uses, styles, and any age!

• 3 Flap Styles to choose from: plain, glitter-filled, animal-face
-plain: clean, classic, and utilitarian
-glitter-filled: a fun look with extra bling. Use your choice of filling: glitter, die-cuts, sequins, tiny beads, etc
-animal-face: a cute bear face and ears (one ear snaps to act as an earbud wrap). Use the included template for the bear face, or use the blank template to create your own animal-face

• 4 Ways to Wear when paired with removable strap
-hip bag / fanny pack / bum bag
-tote add-on

• Clear Front Zip Pocket
• Slip Pocket
• Secure Zippered Main Pocket
• Key Clip

• FINISHED SIZE: 9”W x 5.5”H

• SKILL LEVEL: Advanced & Adventurous Beginner

• SUPPLIES: see photo for supplies and notions

• RECOMMENDED FABRICS: quilting weight cotton for exterior and interior fabrics

-basic sewing skills: you should be familiar with sewing from patterns, common sewing terms, and general bag-making terms
-zipper and snap installation
-sewing with vinyl
-working with double-fold bias

- clear vinyl is the shining star and I recommend a 16 Gauge Clear Vinyl. Otherwise look for a clear vinyl that can bend but wants to hold its shape and doesn’t easily wrinkle.
- double-fold bias binding: this pattern uses store-bought bias binding. While the cut-list includes the size for cutting your own, there are no instructions within the pattern for making your own bias.
- animal-face style: check out the included supplemental guide for examples of different mediums to use, but I most recommend acrylic/oil-based paint pens or cut adhesive vinyl if you have a die-cutting machine. Felt or fabric are other options.
