Theresa from the Spoonflower crew is here today to share a super simple tutorial for a small zippered pouch! You only need a small bit of fabric for this project, so it’s a perfect opportunity to use up your Spoonflower test swatches or your favorite fabric stash scraps. Theresa made her pouch with our brand new Faux Suede, and she shares some tips on how to work and sew with this cool textured fabric. This little pouch is just right for stashing all sorts of goodies, and is also a great project for learning how to sew a zipper.
Theresa: Listen up beginning sewists and zipper-phobes, this one’s for you. All you need for this project are two 8″x8” swatches of medium weight to heavy weight fabric (I’m using Spoonflower’s amazing new Faux Suede) a zipper, some scissors and of course your trusty sewing machine and zipper foot. We don’t need to line our pouch since the faux suede is already thick and durable, making this the perfect quick beginner sewing project.
