Quilt As You Go Zipper Pouch

Tuesday, September 3, 2019

Happy Tuesday! I have a cute little quilt as you go project to share today!

I made this zipper pouch from Svetlana Sotak's new book, That Handmade Touch, as a part of her book hop! I love making Svetlana's scissor cozy pouch, so I was happy to receive a copy of the book. There are lots of cute projects in it, but I was immediately drawn to the quilt as you go zipper pouch.

The publisher, Lucky Spool, sent me a copy of the book so that I could participate in the book hop.

I really enjoy this technique, and it was the perfect project to use up some precious scraps. Most of the scraps that I used for this project are by Umbrella Prints, which unfortunately no longer prints fabric. I've been hoarding these bits for a long time, so it felt really good to use some of them up!

There are lots of cute details on this pouch, including the little twill tape tab, leather pull, and a metal zipper (from Zipit of course!).

The finished pouch is nice and roomy, it would be perfect as a pencil pouch or for sewing tools! I can see this being a great project for gifting!

Follow along with the rest of the book hop on Instagram (I'm @jenib320!).

  1. Very cute, Jeni! This little zip has been on my list to make!

  2. Loving this perfectly sized pouch! So handy for all kinds of collections and wonderful to use up treasured scraps!

  3. So very cute! I am looking forward to getting my book tomorrow that I ordered. What size stitch length did you use for your quilting?
