How To Sew A Zipper Box Pouch

Zipper box pouches are so useful to carry around to put small miscellaneous things in. Whether it’s to throw in a big purse or for traveling. Plus, it’s great to have and keep organized if you don’t already have one. Also, it’s great as storage for makeup or a pencil pouch. I love this pouch because I have bought a few of them in the past, but I would love to sew my own zipper box pouch. I love the fabric design that Keiko Olsson Sewing Channel used in this video. This zipper box pouch is colorful. Keiko Olsson Sewing Channel does a great job with detailed instructions on the screen and there are no instructions left out. I would love to make this pouch for my mom because she constantly buys small pouches at the stores.

First, place the front fabrics on top of each other and sew 1 cm from the bottom to attach them together. Leave 5mm and cut a straight line across under the area where it’s sowed. Layout the fabric with the design facing down and iron the interfacing on the backside of the front fabric.
