Open wide zippered pouch: DIY tutorial

Open wide zippered pouch: DIY tutorial
Doesn’t it ever get annoying digging through a zippered pouch? I love being able to see what’s inside and what I’m searching for. I spotted this little pouch the other day and had to make something similar. I also made a bunch of sizes, but today I’ll show you the small size, next time, I’ll share the medium and large sizes (not pictured) so you can make all three! Materials: fabric, 1/4 yard would be plentyzipper, at least 10″ long or longerthreadinterfacing of your choice, I used Pellon 101SF, or skip it all togetherscrap for zipper end pull Directions:(1/2″ seam allowance, unless otherwise noted) (Optional) Fuse on or baste on interfacing of your choice to main exterior pieces. Lay one exterior piece right side up, lay zipper (teeth side down) on top with the zipper pull at the left – aligning zipper tape edge to the raw edges of the top of the exterior piece. Use your zipper foot and a 1/4″ seam allowance. Flip so that the fabrics are wrong sides facing and press. That’s it! Ta-da!

Needle and Spatula: Pleated Pouch Sewing Tutorial I originally posted this project in August and have been meaning to make it again to do a tutorial ever since. This bag combines elements from a number of different tutorials and projects out there, I basically mixed and matched elements to come up with what I wanted. It has squared off bottom corners which give it a good amount of inside volume and a nice shape. It can stand up (and would stand up even more if made with home dec weight fabric or using interfacing).

For the contrast bottom style pouches, simply cut two pieces of each measurement listed in the chart by the width of the pouch, and sew together using a 1/2" seam allowance. So for the medium size pouch you'll cut two pieces 4.5" tall by 12" wide and two pieces 5.5" tall (the contrast bottom) by 12" wide, sew them together using a 1/2" seam allowance, thus making the front and back exterior pieces.Approximate Finished Dimensions:Small // 4.5" H x 5" W x 3.5" DMedium // 6" H x 6.5" W x 4.5" DLarge // 8.5" H x 8" W x 5" D Fabrics: The Hello Kitty fabrics from the first post were purchased at fabric.com, seems like Hello Kitty is popping up a lot, so keep your eye open if you're a fan (yip yip!)

Making a Zip Pouch without Dented Corners This post really got everyone's attention! I figured I probably wasn't alone in wanting to improve the corners of my zip pouches, and yes indeed, a lot of you expressed interest in learning how to make yours better too. One person mentioned wanting to see a photo of the problem, so the photos above and below show two pouches--the one the left has dented corners, and the one on the right was made using the method I'm going to show you below.

A Better Marker Pouch I made more marker pouches this past fortnight. First, a peek into our handmade past. It was well-loved and much-used, but it was never any good, to be honest. 500 posts I've been busy making patterns and samples and here's what you could make (if you'd like to join in!) 2-layer handstitched cupcake purses! Complete with an easy sew-in zip that the most terrified zip-sewer can conquer!

Upcycled Shirts to Baby Bibs When my son was born, I had the biggest distaste for baby bibs. I hated how “babyish” they looked, yet I knew how functional they were for drool, food, etc… So, I came up with an alternative. Bibs made out of upcycled shirts!So much better. You can make these with either:adult graphic tees Sew Liberated: birds on a branch in the baby's room I'm so pleased with how this turned out! The pictures don't do it justice (and the walls of the room aren't gray - they're a very, very subtle sage green. So subtle that anyone with normal vision would call the color cream). I used the free bird softie pattern from Spool, scrap fabric, and a branch from our backyard. The birds are kept in place by that demi-god of the crafting world, hot glue.

Travel Accessories: Roll-up Makeup Brush Case This handy case is not only great for travel, it's also dandy for everyday storage of your make up brushes. We used one of the four pretty laminates from Anna Maria's Loulouthi collection as our inside fabric choice so if any traces of make up rub off your brushes and onto the case, it can be quickly wiped clean. Laminates are traditionally made in the wider 54-55" width. So, you'll definitely have some pieces left over from this project. In fact, you may have enough to make our stylish insulated lunch bag.
