This is a classic zipper pouch! It is a great project to start sewing zippers if you want to learn. These make great pencil bags. They are also fun to fill and give as gifts.
This is also a fun project to use decorative stitching on. I love adding a cute stitch to the contrasting bottom panel.
This is a flat pouch, kind of like a pencil pouch. So, it does not stand up on its own.
That said, it still holds quite a bit!
You can easily adjust the size of the rectangles to make the bag as bid or small as you would like.
The bag I made has final dimensions of approximately 6 x 9 inches.
Two 7 x 10 inch rectangles for the lining fabric
Two 7 x 10 inch rectangles of lightweight fusible interfacing (optional)
Two 4.5 x 10 inch rectangles for the outside TOP fabric
Two 3.5 x 10 inch rectangles for the outside BOTTOM fabric
One 11 inch Zipper
