How to quickly sew a zippered pouch with flat bottom?
One can NOT have to many zippered pouches, it’s like shoes… you can never ever have too many, right?
Zippered pouches are super easy to make and you can use them for anything and everything literally all the time.
I’ll show you how quick and easy it is, to make one of these beauties using my lips quilt block pattern from the lips mask pattern. This pattern is kind of made for a pouch, because it has the perfect size.
Fabric requirements and materials needed:
lips quilt block finished 9.5″ x 7.5″
– fabric for the back 9.5″ x 7.5″
– 2x strips of solid fabric 2.5″ x 9.5″
– lining fabric 2 x 9.5″ x 9.5″
– medium weight fusable interfacing 2 x 9.5″x 9.5″
– 9 ” zipper ( if your zipper is too long, check out this post on how to quickly shorten a zipper )
– clips or pins
– scissors or rotay cutter
– ruler, thread and sewing machine.
This will give you your bottom corners of the pouch.
This creates a boxed corner. Sew all 8 corners like that.
Sew the zipper first to the front panel and then to the back, again right side of zipper against the right side of the fabric.
Repeat for the back.
And stitch all the way around the pouch , except a 6″ turning gap along the bottom of the lining using a 1/4″ seam allowance.
