Fun Multi Zipper Pouches


I've been having lots of fun making multi zippered pouches in the past few weeks. It was started with these pouches. It is so fun to make and I can use up my scraps too! 

Disney Pouches

Today I finished the above Disney pouches while waiting for the sons to come back from School. The weather was quite nice today, the humidity has drop significantly, so it was a good day to sew.

The triple zipper bag is so spacious. You can use it for anything. We never have enough of pouches, right?. Even when I can make pouches, I still buy them whenever I see a cute one!

They really make a great gift and it's always useful for everyone. I always carry pouches too when I travel to keep my bag organize. To keep the headphone, cable charger,  emergency medicines, sweets, etc.

New Zipper Pouches

Hello again,

Yesterday I made these one of a kind zipper pouches which in my wish list to sew. It's a free pattern from Noodlehead. I downloaded the pattern a few months ago, but yesterday after sorting out another scrap bag I felt so inspired and got down to make these 4 zipper pouches!

I called this fabric the little black dress. It has very fun print. I added black fabric. This is the first one I made, I used interfacing on both exterior and lining. It made the pouch really sturdy.

The second one is this black and red pouch. The fabric I used is rayon cotton which has interesting pattern. I fussy cut the fabric to get this double sided pouch!

I only put interfacing on the exterior fabrics for the three pouches. I think I love this better, since the pouch can turned out more spacious and flexible. I medium weight cotton fusible interfacing. It gives enough structure for the pouch.

I used the same method for my previous pouches which I am still using now. Even after several washing, the pouch remain the same. If you're in India, you might want to check out my post about interfacing

Back to school with handmade pouch


I'm back from the summer break in Indonesia. I apologize I could not visit and reply all the comments from my last post since I had to rush. I thought of replying and reading all the post during the holiday, but it just didn't happen. 

Now I'm back in the sultry weather of Indian summer. The past few days I was busy with tidying up my home after I read about Konmari method (go and google it :D ). You may have heard, read or saw her post all over social media. I get the drift from what I read on the blog and saw on Youtube so I decided to buy her book. I'm still waiting for it to arrive, so I will tell you about it (hopefully) in my next post!

Multi Zipper Pouch

In the middle of the chaos I created, I managed to finished 4 multi zipper pouches, which 2 of them are orders. The opportunity came at the right time, just when I was thinking to sew a few pouches for stock. I was looking and considering a few options. When she DM me on Instagram, she wanted a pouch with multiple compartments and this style is just perfect.

I always love to work with new prints. I especially love the snoopy fabrics. I recently got quite a few snoopy prints from my trip to Indonesia just because they are just too cute to pass! Like this snoopy back to school print. Isn't it too cute?

I really love this colorful hearts print. This was the first multi zip pouch that I made. The pouch dimension is 8" W x 6.5" H which is so spacious! You can fit in lots of things in there.
