Winnie utility pouch – testers roundup

Are you planning to make the Winnie utility pouch and looking for some inspiration? You are in the right place! Below, you can see all versions made by my lovely group of pattern testers, and find out what they said after they finished sewing their pouches! Enjoy the show!

“I think the Winnie utility pouch is a great pattern for beginners who are looking to grow and take on some rewarding challenges. I learned quite a few bag-making techniques from making this pouch. What a unique design, with different kinds of pockets and storage compartments! This pouch is highly customizable, so you can make it with as few or as many pockets as you want. I love that this pouch is large enough for my 10-inch iPad but not “baggy” like a backpack; it is the perfect size for a light reading day at a coffee shop or a park. I added D-rings to the tabs and turned this pouch into a crossbody bag!” @Sew Plearn

“Perfect size to store or carry tools to sewing retreats, even my iPad fits inside!” @Peg Coombes

“Absolutely love the pattern.” @Denise Diane Design

“Love this bag! Super roomy with tons of pockets. So many potential uses. Sews up quickly with some unexpected construction methods that were a pleasure.” @ovesonlife

“This pouch along with the accompanying Winnie needle book is a great addition to anyone’s sewing supplies. Large enough to store most needed items for travel to your next retreat.” @bagsandmorebysabrina

“Winnie Utility Pouch is a fabulous pattern that is highly versatile. Instructions for using bias binding for corners are precise and easy to follow! If you have been wanting to try bias binding, this is the pattern you’ve been waiting for!”@chavanthandmade

“I can see so many uses for this pattern. Not just for craft supplies, also school supplies, personal items when traveling, or what about a small tool kit (using canvas or duck cloth).”

“Easy to follow pattern and the utility pouch is great with it’s many pockets both inside and outside. Great for retreats, trips for sewing supplies, children’s craft items, or toiletries. Really spacious and practical.” @patchandmixcrafts

“I thought it was an awesome pattern, I struggled a few times but I am so happy with the end result.” @jtpalp

“I love this pouch! It has lot of pockets, and is big enough to carry all my stuff and fits perfectly to my handbag, so it can even be used as a bag organizer!” @May Dee

“Another fantastic pattern. Unique back pocket installation with photos as a guide to make it super simple. With a few minor changes to pocket options this utility pouch could have a variety of uses.” @daisy_enchanted

“What a fabulous pouch, the perfect companion to the Winnie needle book. There are so many uses for this, with plenty of pockets for all your crafting or storage needs. The pattern is well written and comes together beautifully with a few new techniques included.” @by_merazell

“I think it would make a great gift for a sewing friend, including the Winnie needle book with it. It is a large pouch that can hold everything I need for my EPP.” @Pattyodesigns 

“It was a surprise when I finished it! It is a really spacious, quite big pouch, I love it!” @orchic_handmade

“I really like this pouch! It’s so big with so many pockets. It will be great to carry sewing supplies on retreats. I really liked the construction methods used. There were a few things that I hadn’t tried before but they worked beautifully.” @mtspool

“I loved it. It was very well written. Definitely different than most patterns out there with similar ideas. A fun sew!” @VeesSewCrafty

“I want to try it again. I love the bag.”

“I love this pattern! Every time I make an Allsewpetite pattern, I learn new techniques. The instructions are easy to follow, and I am so so happy with the finished product! Gussets always scare me, and this one turned out great on the first try!” @edgeanddolor
