Anyone need to learn how to sew a zipper bag? Then I have the perfect easy zipper pouch pattern and video class for you. Introducing the Malvern Zipper Pouch. Malvern is a set of 4 different sized zipper bags with an easy-sew construction method.
The Malvern Zipper Pouch is a simple sew, doesn’t need many materials and will be your go-to zipper bag to sew. Use it as a phone pouch, a clutch bag, a pencil and pen case, or a cosmetics bag. There are 4 sizes of zipper bag in this one pattern so there will always be one that exactly meets your needs. Need it even larger – no problem. The pattern is easy to scale up, just use a longer zip and add a little extra to the width and height measurements when you cut. Make it square, rectangular, long and thin – it’s so easy to customise.
Want something soft and padded? That works too. You can add fusible fleece as an option on top of the interfacing for the larger sizes.
Features of the Malvern Zipper Pouch:
- 4 sizes included in the same pattern
- Easy construction method
- The instructions come as a PDF download and include step by step written instructions with photos
- There is a full-length video tutorial upgrade
- You can add small ribbon tabs at the end of your zipper (optional)
