Big and Small Zipper Pouch

Big and Small Zipper Pouch PDF Sewing Pattern

Hello Everyone!

I have a new PDF Sewing Pattern in my Etsy Shop. It is called Big and Small Zipper Pouches. Zipper Pouches is very fun to sew and has so many uses. I think it is almost impossible to have too many of them. Very often it is enough to use leftover fabric scraps and zippers. They can also easily be made in to any size.

This pattern is, like my other patterns, an easy to follow tutorial style instructions with lots of photos. There is three files to download. One is with all the instructions, one is the pattern pieces for printing on letter sized paper and one is the pattern pieces for printing on A4 size paper. The files with the pattern pieces you have to print and cut out. Make sure the page scaling is set to none, actual size or 100% on your printer.

Small – Width 8 1/2″, Height 3 1/2″, Depth at base 2″

Tote Handbag

Hello Everyone!

I have a new pattern in my Etsy shop, you can find it here. This is my entry in the Emkie Designs Mystery Bag Challenge.

It is the first time I participate in anything like this. Part of the challenge was to choose at least 3 items from a mystery list to be included in the entry. I chose five items. So that’s the reason this bag includes more hardware than my designs usually do.

The handles have boning inside to make them really stiff. I have also used a turn lock as the bag closure and rivets  to secure the handles to the bag.

On the inside I have used a zipper for a secure pocket and a swivel hook to keep the keys safe and easy to find in the bag.

 

To keep the bag sturdy I have used  medium weight fusible woven interfacing on the outer fabric and then iron on batting on top of that. On the lining I have used light weight fusible woven interfacing.

I am really happy with how it turned out, especially the boning in the handles and the rivets.

Until next time happy sewing and take care!

Annika
