Flat-Bottom Zipper Pouch - It's My Party Day 1

Welcome to the third annual It’s My Party and I’ll Craft if I Want To! Amy (from Ameroonie Designs) and I are celebrating our birthdays this week by sharing a few projects that we made just for us. Today I’m sharing a flat-bottom zipper pouch...


This is the first flat-bottom pouch I've ever made. I'm not sure why I never attempted one before, but I have to say, I'll probably be making most of my pouches this way from now on. I love how much more room the flat bottom provides. And this is a pretty big pouch... it's 12" wide, 6" tall, and 4.5" deep.


By the way, have you seen this circle stitch fabric by Patty Young? I'm kind of loving it right now. I bought a fat quarter bundle with one of every color. I almost couldn't bring myself to cut into it for this pouch. Almost :)

Make sure you check out Amy’s project today over on Ameroonie Designs. She made a super-cute notebook cover...


Stay tuned for another It's My Party and I'll Craft if I Want To project on Friday!

Love your choice of fabrics, and I can see why the flat bottom would work well.

Love the stitch fabric. And all I needed was an excuse to buy more fabric. ;)

Is there a pattern or tutorial available for this? I love it!!

LeAnne said...

I'd like the tutorial for this too! I have a lot of little pieces of fabric that would be perfect for it!

Lily Anne said...

Love the fabric, especially the inside color. I am also interested in the tutorial as well. Thanks for sharing!

Sandy, LeAnne, Lily Anne - I made this up as I went along based on some pouches and bags that I've made in the past. A tutorial I would suggest trying is this one from Anna at Noodlehead:

The zipper is a little different than mine, but it gives the same type of flat-bottom pouch.
