Cell Phone Pouch

When I set out to make this project I wanted something simple. I wanted a cute, fun bag that even beginning students could make with success.

For that reason, this is a bag making basics project.

One zipper, one pocket, done.


I had intended this project for my younger students, thinking it would appeal mostly to young teenagers. I didn’t realize how much I would use it!

It is the perfect size to take on a walk, place inside another bag, or use for quick trips.

This week I went to a conference and was carrying around a gianormous bag with laptop, tablet, snacks, notebook, chargers, and more. It was super nice to place this little pouch with my phone, license, credit card, and lip gloss in the pocket of my large bag, and then simply pull it out when I left for lunch and breaks. That way I didn’t have to carry the huge bulky bag with me everywhere. It was very nice to have!


This project is a 3/10 in regards to difficulty. I would recommend being comfortable using your machine as well as knowing how to change to and use the zipper foot.

    This is a very cute pattern! (I could open it with no difficulty.) Can you tell me what the finished product dimensions are?

      Thank you for your question! The finished pouch measures approximately 5 x 7 inches. The opening with the zipper will be a bit smaller than 5 inches.
