Zipper Pouch for Gift Cards
I’m catching up on all the projects I worked on this past month. Isn’t Christmas wonderful? It’s such a motivator to get out the creativity and tools, and get to work! Here’s a collection of simple zipper pouches I made to house gift cards I was giving as gifts. I wanted the pouches to be big enough that the recipients would find other uses for it once the cards were used. These have a finished size of these are about 7″ tall, 6″ wide, and the bottom has 3″ pleats in it so it’ll stand up. It’s a nice size to hold electronic cords, toiletries, or even the miscellaneous detritus that collects in our purses!
There are a ton of tutorials online if you need help making your own pouch. Skip to my Lou has a nice tutorial for a basic pouch, or if you want to get all fancy, try the tutorials at Sew Delicious or Noodlehead. Also Craftsy has a wonderful free class titled “Bag Making Basics” that includes video instructions on making a zipper pouch. If you haven’t been to craftsy.com yet, you need to go! Great classes and indy patterns. It’s really a fun site. Go there. Go now!
