Sewing A Ring Binder Pouch: A Fun And Functional DIY Project

Hello, my crafty friends!

As someone who loves to keep everything in one place, I know the struggle of staying organised. That’s why I always look for new and innovative ways to tidy my workspace. I love zipper pouches, so you will understand my excitement when I discovered ring binder pouches! They’re the perfect solution for keeping my pens, pencils, and other small items within easy reach while minimising clutter.

But as much as I love using pouches, I also love the satisfaction of creating something with my two hands, so I decided to create my own ring binder pouch. And let me tell you, this project is quick, easy, and so enjoyable! You won’t stop at one!

What makes this pouch so special is the combination of features it offers. With a zipper closure, you can be sure that everything stays inside securely, no matter where you take it. And with a clear vinyl front, you can easily see what’s inside without opening it up.
But the real magic of this pouch is in its versatility. The eyelets make it easy to keep inside your binder or attach to a backpack or purse. And with the raw edges finished with bias binding, you can be sure it will hold up to everyday use.

So if you’re looking for a fun and easy sewing project to help you stay organised, look no further than the ring binder pouch. With just a few basic materials and simple sewing skills, you can create a pouch that will become an essential part of your daily routine.

Materials you will need:

  • The fabric: You will need external and lining fabric of your choice. You can use various types of materials, such as quilting cotton, canvas, denim, corduroy, cork or vinyl. I used a faux leather fabric on the side trim and quilting cotton for the external and lining pieces. If you are looking for a new fabric, check out Minerva! They have a large selection of beautiful materials available in many colours and prints!
  • Clear vinyl
  • Sewing machine, thread, and needle
  • 2.5 cm (1″) Bias binding
  • Fabric scissors
  • Fusible woven interfacing: When working with a lightweight fabric, such as quilting cotton or cotton poplin, you may need to interface it with some woven interfacing. I like to use Pellon SF101. 
  • Iron to press your fabric and fuse the woven interfacing
  • 5 mm eyelets and tools to set them in.
  • #5 zipper
