IMPORTANT INFO: PDF SEWING PATTERN ONLY.

Sew zip top box bottom pouches in five sizes using this sewing pattern.

These instructions demonstrate how to make a zipper pouch from two or more pieces fabric using only one main pattern piece and some improvisational cutting. This is a quick way to put together a pouch in interesting fabric combinations, while using up your fabric scraps.

The pouches can be divided either horizontally, vertically, or even a mixture of both. Add some trim to the seams, use decorative topstitching, or piece several print fabrics together to create unique pouches.

Includes step-by-step cutting and sewing instructions and pattern pieces for 5 different sizes.

This document is a paper & ink friendly 12-pages: 7-pages text & color photo instructions + 5-pages of full size pattern pieces.
