Sew five sizes of zippered pouches with box bottoms using this PDF sewing pattern.

These sewing 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 and interfacing scraps. It's also a great way to sew if the cutting part is your least favorite part of the sewing process!

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-sizes.

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