Noodlehead so you can see what's in it all at once.
Washi Tape Zipper Pouch
1. 2 pieces 4"X8" of exterior fabric
2. 2 pieces 4" X 8" of interior fabric
3. 2 pieces 3 1/2" X 7 1/2" fusible fleece
4. 1 piece 1/2" X 6" (optional) for zipper pull
5. 1 piece 1 3/4" X 3" for zipper tab
You will also need a 10" zipper and sewing supplies.
- To prep the fabric, follow manufacturers instructions and fuse the fleece to the wrong side of the exterior fabric pieces.
- Take your 1 3/4" X 3" piece and fold in half along the 3" side, press. Open up the piece and bring the two edges into the center pressed line, press.
- Fold the piece back together and press one final time. Set aside.
- Press the interior fabric away from the zipper, then press the exterior fabric away from the zipper also.
- Place the second piece of exterior fabric face up on your table. Line up the metal stops of the zipper and line the edge of the zipper up with top of the fabric, pin in place. Fold up the zipper past the stop and pin out of the way. Repeat the rest of the steps from the first side, making sure to mark a point 1" away from the end of the front fabric piece, stop sewing at that pin and pull the zipper out of the way when sewing. It makes much more sense once you do it.
- Once you've pressed both sides of fabric away from the zipper, close the zipper part way.
- Move the interior fabric out of the way and pin the extra zipper to the front piece of the bag to keep it from getting sewn into the seams.
- Line up the exterior pieces of the bag right sides together and pin into place, then line up the lining. Fold the seam allowances at the zipper toward the lining side of the bag. Mark an opening 4"-5" in the bottom of the lining to allow for turning the pouch.
- Sew around all four sides of the bag, except for your opening in the lining using a 1/4" seam allowance. Mark 1" squares out of each corner and cut them out.
- Pull open each corner and line up the seams to create a straight line. Pin.
- You will end up with a wonky looking creature. :) Sew each corner with a 1/4" seam allowance.
