Last Minute Gift #2 – Flat Bottom Zip Pouch

Another zipper pouch. I told you I got addicted fast. This one was made mostly using this tutorial from Sew Together. I liked that it was a little more tailored and that the flat bottom gave this room for more items – I’m envisioning it being used as a makeup bag, maybe? Or even a diaper clutch.

I did change one thing, in that I seamed the bottom of my pouch differently, so I had 3 pieces instead of 2. You can see in the picture below how I topstitched on a pocket,  added piping (basically the same way I did with yesterday’s pouch) and how I made and seamed on a bottom piece.

I also added a wrist strap (basically a tube turned right side out and pressed) when I sewed up the side seams.




I had a lot of fun making these, and even with piping and pleats and pockets, they still didn’t take all that much fabric or that much time, so if you still need some Christmas gifts you’ve got time.
And I now have a pile of scraps that has been designated specifically for more zipper pouches.
