Mention the word zipper and many stitchers flinch.  Zippers seem to be that taboo topic within the sewing world and I’m not sure why. They are so much easier to sew than people think. Not to mention, zippers are a key ingredient in zipper pouches. So, even if you are new to sewing, I encourage you to try one of these amazing zipper pouch patterns.

  2. Jann from Newton Custom Interiors says

    What a great list of zipper bags! I have pinned it!

  3. Thanks for a brilliant round up. I’m pinning this for when I need a stash buster or a ittle handmade gift. #pintorials

  4. Valerie (@MsValerieAnne84) says

    Hi Heather, hopefully I’ll be getting a sewing machine this year, after 3 years of wanting one.. so I was curious on if this list will stay up or if it’s something special for the Christmas countdown? 🙂

    • Fingers crossed that a machine is tucked under your tree Valerie! This list will stay live for everyone to refer back to. Zipper bags are a fantastic project to make when time and supplies are limited. Not to mention that everyone can use a new bag!

  5. Brittany Duchesneau says

    This is an incredibly helpful list of tutorials! I’m planning a quick backyard wedding and wanted to provide guests with hand warmers…then I thought a customized holding pouch would be a perfect keepsake since the hand warmers are the same size of an iPhone it would be practical for all. Would cotton be the best fabric for that?
    I have no idea how to sew and the wedding is in 2 weeks. Is there any way we can order these or does anyone know someone that could do this for us??

    • That would be a lovely gift Brittany. At this time I do not take custom sewing orders but I am sure you can look on line. Etsy would be a great place to start. Cotton would work well.

      Wishing the Bride & Groom a wonderful life together!

    • Hello Anitra,
      Thank you SO much!! I think the site must have changed over and a new link has been added in it’s place of another personal favorite of mine.

  8. Thanks for compiling such a wonderful selection of zippered pouches!! My stash of scrap fabrics thanks you , too!

  9. Do you have any idea or do you already have a pattern for a little zipped pouch? I’m looking for something I could add a strap to, has a zip at the top plus a couple of zips on the front that all create their own pocket. I saw one in a shop for over $100. and figured I can make that. I’m an advanced sewer, right now don’t have the time to sit and design it myself. thanx soo much!

  10. Thank you. I’ve pinned this.

  11. laura middleton says
