Sewing Summit Pouch Swap - Tutorials List

Hi everyone! I'm excited for our fun pouch swap and I wanted to put together a list of free pouch tutorials that I have used and like:

Embroidered zipper pouch from Toni at Make It Perfect

Gathered pouch (clutch) from Anna at Noodlehead - Anna also has a cute scrappy make-up pouch tutorial and her wide-mouth zipper pouch

Zipper Pouch from Kelly at Kelby Sews

Zipper Pouch from Vanessa at Little Big Girl Studio

How to Sew a Zipper Pouch from Gussy Sews

How to Sew a Zip Pouch Without Dented Corners from Michelle at Michelle Patterns (formerly Keyka Lou) - Michelle has another free dumpling pouch tutorial too

Triple Zip Pouch from Debbie at A Quilter's Table 

I also LOVE Elizabeth Hartman's Perfect Zip Bags pattern - this one isn't free but it is a bargain for all the great photos and info you get.

If you're looking for inspiration check out all the beautiful work in the Pretty Little Pouch group on flickr - so much great sewing going on!

- no sign-ups, make a pouch and get a pouch - it's going to be that easy!
- no size requirements or partners, just make something you would be happy to get
- if you would like to include a few small extras in your pouch (fabric scraps, something from your hometown, chocolate ;-) that is completely optional and up to you!)
- I'll find a space and time for the swap as the Summit gets closer and post the details here and in the google group Erin set up.

I know there are many more great tutorials out there - if you know of another great one please leave a link to it in the comments. If you have any questions please let me know! Looking forward to meeting everyone in October :-)


  1. looks like fun! i'd love to participate.

  2. awesome list of tutes! Are you going to start a flickr group so we can post our zip pouches, and maybe inspire others to start sewing? :)

  3. Looking forward to the swap and connecting at the summit!
