Zipper Pouch Week Day 2

Hello Today!!  I paused teacher gift making to sew up a little wristlet clutch for a cute graduating gal.  This is a simple lined zipper pouch with an added ruffle and handle.

Here's what the inside looks like.  It's the perfect size to hold all the essentials.

Want to make something similar? Dana from Made has a great tutorial with a variety of variations. Check it out!!

Here's a little tip... Once you turn your pouch right side out, you'll have a little hole left that needs to be stitched closed.  Many tutorials instruct you to handsew your inside hole closed.  It saves a ton of time if you just stitch it closed with your machine.   Once you start using your clutch you'll never look twice at how nicely you finished off the inside.

See you tomorrow!


  1. What a lovely pouch! The colours are fab. I always stitch the holes closed with my machine, my hand sewing looks much messier

  2. I really like the fabric on this one. I really need to start shopping for fabric online....there's just so much more out there than you can find at the local fabric store. I love the geometricc print on the inside.
