The Everything Pouch

Hello Everyone,

The Everything Pouch is my newest PDF sewing pattern and it comes with pattern pieces in three different sizes. It has no exposed seams or seams covered with binding. The finished measurements are:

Small – H: 3 ¼”  W: 4 ½” D: 2 ½”
Medium –  H: 3 ¼” W: 8 ½”  D: 2 ½”
Large – H: 5 ½”  W: 9 ½” D: 2 ½”

The large size works great as a toiletries / make up bag.
The medium size works great as a pencil case
The small size is great for things like binding clips, hair ties etc.

To make all three pouches you will need:

  • 15″ (38 cm) outer fabric ( fat quarter is sufficient if print is non directional)
  • 10” (25 cm) contrast fabric for zipper panels and tabs
  • 15″ (38 cm) lining fabric ( fat quarter is sufficient if print is non directional)
  • 20” (50 cm) medium weight woven interfacing
  • 8”, 12”,16″ (20, 30, 40 cm) or longer dress zippers, 1” (2.5 cm) wide
  • Sewing machine with zipper foot 
  • General sewing supplies

All measurements are based on 42” (112 cm) wide fabric. 

Of course you can make them in all different fabrics, which also makes it a great scrap fabric project. This project is best suited for the intermediate sewer.

I hope you like this pattern as much as I do. The combinations of different fabrics and colours are endless, and the pouch can be used for everything also.

Until next time, take care and happy sewing!

A New Year and A New Pencil Case

Happy New Year Everyone,

I hope you have had a good holiday season. Hopefully you got a break and were able to catch up with some family or friends, or maybe both.
A new year can also be a fresh start.
Here in Australia it is summer holidays at the moment and a new school year starts at the end of January for most kids.

So my first project on the blog for 2019 is a very easy pencil case project.

Mini Scrap Sewing Projects


Hello Everyone,

Lately I have been playing around with my scraps while deciding what my next big project is going to be and what direction I want to go with my sewing.

I think it’s fun with scrap projects. The keyring/zipper pouch in the picture is made with cut off corners from pencilcases  I made earlier in the year.

It is a simple zipper pouch that’s 2″x2″ with boxed bottom corners and a tab with a 1″ split ring.


The two mini baskets in the picture above is made from corners cut off from boxed zipper pouches I made last year. They are about 2″x2″ in the base and 1″-1 1/4″ in height. I have made the lining 1/2″ higher so it “wraps” around the top edge and looks like a binding.

Until next time Happy Sewing and Take Care!

Annika
