Everybody needs a perfect little zipped pouch. With this pattern you can choose from a simple, flat pouch -great for cosmetics, pills, coins, ipod, blackberry etc, etc... or one with cute pleats, giving extra volume and making it perfect for a Camera case or mini Clutch. Add an optional wrist strap for even more practicality. Patterns and instructions for all 3 variations are included.

It's closed with a sunken zip construction for a clean, professional-looking finish. The pouch is fully lined with a padded lining to give shape and protection.

The finished pouch will measure approx. 14 cm wide x 8 cm tall.

This sewing pattern is a digital file, not a paper pattern, and is now delivered via INSTANT DOWNLOAD! You'll receive an email to your registered Etsy email address with your download link within 10 minutes of purchase. You will need Adobe Reader to view your PDF pattern, regular printer paper and a printer for printing the patterns. No paper copy will be mailed.

There are 3 PDF files to download:

-1 INSTRUCTIONS file: 4 pages of clear step-by-step instructions with photographs and drawings to follow.

-2 PATTERN files: (1 for the pleated pouch, 1 for the flat pouch) accurate, computer drawn patterns to print out on your home printer at the 100% scale, tape together & cut

Please note you are purchasing the pattern & instructions to make this item, not the finished item.

This design would suit medium to heavyweight fabrics incl. denim, drill, canvas, heavy satin, brocade, heavy nylon, etc...or lighter weight fabrics with the addition of some fusible interfacing to add body. Not so suitable for fabrics which crease heavily, such as pure linens. A fantastic way to use vintage or reclaimed fabrics!


*fabric for exterior, approx. 20cm x 50cm (8" x 20")
*fusible medium weight interfacing approx. 20cm x 5cm (8" x 2").
*fabric for lining, approx. 20cm x 50cm (8" x 20")
*medium weight fusible batting (padding) approx. 20cm x 50cm (8" x 20")(eg Vilene H640 medium loft or Pellon #TP971F)
*17cm/7" length (at minimum -longer is fine) closed-end zip with 4mm width teeth (can be nylon or metal but important it is not wider than this)

tools required: domestic sewing machine, scissors, iron, needle & thread, chalk or pencil, pins.

If you would like to make it in a coated cotton or oilcloth (as the spot fabric pouch in my photo above) there are step by step instructions on how to adapt for this on my blog at http://constructivblog.wordpress.com/2010/03/15/making-the-little-pouch-in-coated-canvas/

If you wish to add a leather tassel zip pull, as pictured, I have posted a free tutorial on my blog:
