When I found this awesome zipper pouch video tutorial by The Missouri Star Quilt Company, YouTube, I just had to try it. This fabulous video includes many tips for beginners, such as pinning, pressing, trimming, consistency, and seam ripper tips. The instructions Jenny gives in her video will guide you step by step through measuring your fabric zipper pouch and cutting it precisely to make sewing and assembly as easy as possible. There are so many tips to help you, so this zipper pouch will be a breeze to make. It’s rare to find a pouch that opens up so widely, so when I saw this open wide zipper pouch knew my son needed this for his art school supplies. My son just started a drawing class at the local art center and I had to get a lot of supplies for his class. I had to think of a container that fits nicely into his book bag but also was large enough for all of his supplies. The sewing instructions are really easy to follow, you just cut out your outer fabric layer and interfacing, then start sewing. You can use softer interfacing for a pocket pouch you would just be using for supply transport, but if you want your pocket pouch to stand up on the desk as an attractive supply holder, use heavy interfacing. Fusible interfacing is also a good option because these projects go more smoothly with a fusible. You iron the fusible interfacing right onto the fabric, it becomes a much more durable component to your project. The zipper instructions are also very good, zippers can be tricky and the sewing method shown in the video is super quick and self-explanatory. I loved everything about this project, I think you will too.
