Tutorial: Let's make flat zipper pouch

 



Everyone loves handmade gifts and this gifting season let's make something for your loved ones. This flat pouch is my go-to project when I need a small gift to make. It's super easy to make. You can even make this from scrap fabrics and other supplies. 


What you need:

1. Exterior fabrics - 9" W x 6.5" H (cut 2)
2. Lining Fabrics - 9" W x 6.5" H (cut 2)
3. Pocket Fabrics - 5" W x 6.5" H (cut 1)
4. All Purpose Interfacing - 9" W x 6.5" H ( cut 2)
5. #5 Zipper - 9" Long and zipper pull
6. Cotton Batting  10" x 7.5" (Optional)
7. 3/8" D-ring and 3/8" wide fabric ribbon (Optional)
8. Fabric Zipper Tab  1.5" x 2" 

Fabrics & Interfacing:

Regarding fabric, in the video, I used lightweight Indian block print cotton fabric for the exterior and poplin cotton for the lining. Since poplin is thick-ish, I don't use interfacing for the lining as well as for the pocket. 
If you're using thicker fabric such as denim, you can change the interfacing to a lightweight one or omit the interfacing if it's stiff thick denim or canvas. Although I personally will still use lightweight non-woven interfacing to give a more structured finish. 

For this flat pouch, we're going to use All-Purpose interfacing which is fused on the wrong side of the exterior fabric. This interfacing is best to use for padded pouch or bag as well as no-padded ones. 


For this project, I am using cotton batting scraps from my quilts, because the pouch is intended to store mobile phone. You can make without batting or wadding, to make a floppy pouch. 


This flat zipper pouch is very handy. You can use it to keep a cell phone, a face mask, and a few cards or cash. Now, let's start making. If you have any questions, feel free to comment and I'll help as much as I can.
