A Laminated Zipper Pouch

One thing that's been on my 'to do' list for a long time is to make some pouches with zippers, as it's not something I've done a lot of and I wanted to work on a few 'quick' projects. 

So when I was shopping at The City Quilter in NYC, I thought it the prime opportunity to stock up on zips in a selection of colours and when I got home I didn't delay.  

I used this tutorial by Noodlehead, which is very clear, even I could manage to follow it ;-)  The other advantage of this pattern is it gives you a range of sizes, from big, medium to small, so you can choose the size to suit your needs.  

Also while shopping at The City Quilter, I was stopped in my tracks by the wonderful selection of laminate fabrics available.  And they weren't the thick, tablecloth kind, but thin and soft, and perfect for pouches, aprons etc.  Isn't this blue and aqua laminate just to die for! 

I decided to line my pouch and close my zip with these gorgeous Moda dots.

I don't think you can ever have enough dots in your stash, they are gorgeous and timeless.

I'm not ashamed to say I'm chuffed to bits with my very first zipper pouch.  And I really enjoyed the making process.  So much so that I made another one...but I'll share that another day.

Thank you for stopping by,

  1. Hi Sarah, thanks for dropping by my blog,
    And the laminated pouches are brilliant. I recently bought a scrap bag which I thought was fabric and it turned out to be laminate. I wasn't sure what to do with it - now I know! Thanks for that!

  2. Brilliant! Between you and Fran teaching me next month, I am going to be able to churn out these fabby zipped bags in no time! Love your work, Sarah :)

  3. I love this pouch and have been wanting to make one for ages. Love the colour of yours and great in laminate fabric.
