Quilted Zipper Pouch How to


Sometimes I buy fabrics that I love, but have no idea what I’m going to do with them. Lately I have been trying my best to use things that have been sitting in my sewing room too long (more on that goal later). So for this bag I used two beautiful prints I was saving and it turned out lovely and perfect!

I designed this bag to be quilted and bound like an actual quilt, but has all the functionality of a regular zipper bag. So it is a great project if you want to practice some basic quilting skills.

Piece Measurements:
Bag Back – Outer | Lining | Batting
9 x 8 inches
Bag Front Upper – Outer | Lining | Batting
9 x 2 inches
Bag Front Lower – Outer | Lining | Batting
9 x 6 inches
2 1/4 inches x Width of Fabric

Other Supplies:
9 inch zipper & coordinating thread

I chose to use white flannel as my batting, mostly because I have tons of it and it’s easy to work with but use whatever you have available. Once your pieces are all cut out follow my step-by-step video tutorial to but your bag together.
