This zip pouch was made using Amy Butler's Sketchbook print and 5" high x 8.5" wide rectangular pieces of fabric, but I modified the top corners so they are the same as the corners in the zipper pouch templates.
The way those corners are drafted helps keep the pouch from bulging out at the sides next to the zipper. If you have the zipper pouch templates, you can trace one of the top corners to modify some of your other pattern pieces.
I made this pouch because I wanted to make this zip pull again to see if it was easier than I remembered. It was not. Maybe I'll try it again and eventually get used to sewing it, but it's not what I'd call fun to sew.
The finished size of this pouch is 6.75" wide x 3.5" high x 1.5" deep.
This pouch has bottom corners like in the Strap Clutch & Pleated Wristlet patterns. I like these corners a lot! They are easy to sew and I think the finished pouch sits up a little better than a box bottom pouch.
It's been a while since I've made the small size Zip Pocket Pouch, but in the last 24-hours I've managed to finish two of them.
Every time I make one of these pouches I remember how quick and easy it is to sew this zipper! This is perhaps the easiest zipper to install in all of my patterns.
I was thinking about sewing this while I was walking the dog this morning, and got the idea to just skip cutting out the individual A - C pieces and sew the entire pouch and then cut it out.
So that is what I did for this one. Instead of cutting out each of the invididual A - C pieces, I free hand cut the pieces (with interfacing applied) so each was slightly larger than the pattern piece it represents. Then I sewed all of pieces to the zipper in the order described in the instructions and cut out the completed pouch at the end. It worked great!
Give it a try if you've already made one of these, or are fairly confident with your sewing. It might be a lot to think about if you are making one of these pouches for the first time, but after you see how the pouch goes together it will be easy.
It's lined in a green print I picked up after noticing how few greens are in my fabric collection! I'm not sure what this print is called. It's a pretty recent collection and might be from Moda. If you know what it is, leave a comment (please and thanks).
