Hello my crafty friends!!! Hope you are doing well.
I’ve been quiet all month, but rest assured I am working hard on few new patterns! Many of them will be available for free in my shop so stay tuned! Today I want to share one of them with you, because who doesn’t like freebies, am I right?!
For a while now I wanted to make a simple zipper pouch, that I could whip up in no time, but still be satisfied. Being busy at work, with so little spare time for sewing is annoying, so having a perfect little project that I can make in one sitting is great! The easy zipper pouch is a fantastic scrap busting project and an excellent beginner friendly pattern. It is fully lined and features a top zipper closure and a front slip pocket. The pattern includes three pouch sizes: small, medium and large, so you can organize your items with ease!
Finished measurements: H / W / D
Small: 10 / 16 / 5 cm (4 / 6 3⁄8 / 2”)
Medium: 14 / 20 / 6 cm (5 1⁄2 / 8 / 2 3⁄8”)
Large: 18 / 24 / 8 cm (7 / 9 1⁄2 / 3”)
You will need the following list of supplies:
Please note: The fabric recommendation is based on the large Easy zipper pouch.

80 cm / 60 cm (31 ½” / 24”) External fabric (quilting cotton, canvas, cork, vinyl, wax cotton etc.)

The easy zipper pouches would make a great gift to a friend, a colleague or a teacher.
