Materials List

  • Small scraps of fabric
  • Zipper


  1. I like to use the zipper as a guide for cutting out the pouch. Make the lining about one inch longer than the main fabric. The pouch can be any size that you like as long as it is a rectangle.

  2. Iron the top of the lining fabric over about 3/4 of an inch. This will make it much easier to attach it to the pouch- do not skip this step!

  3. Sew the top of the main fabric to the zipper, then iron the wrong side up.

  4. Now you will be glad that you ironed! Place the lining fabric over the zipper and sew along both sides. If it is a little uneven at the sides, don't worry- you can fix it in the next step.

  5. Now, turn it inside out and sew around the perimeter, leaving the bottom of the lining open. Leave the zipper partially open so that you can turn it right side out again. It is also a lot easier if you start each seam at the zipper- that keeps it from shifting and... inevitable seam ripping.

  6. Now turn it the right side out. Fold the lining in and sew it closed. I don't mind the seam being visible because it is in the inside of the pouch.

Zippered pouches come in handy for so many things. I particularly like them for traveling to be used in a suitcase, useful in a variety of sizes, to help with organization. Obvious uses are for jewelry and cosmetic products but great to corral socks, power cords, and other smallish items. Instructions show that they are easy to sew too. Great scrap fabric project.
