Pretty Posies Pouch



I will teach you how to create a zippered pouch from start to finish, including how to insert the zipper, how to box the bottom of the bag and how to attach the wrist strap. If you have your materials cut and ready to sew, my plan is for you to complete the pouch during the class.


Information regarding materials:

The class fee covers the pattern and the hardware for the wrist strap.

For the front of the bag (patchwork), you can use a mini charm pack (2 ½” precut squares) or cut any yardage or scraps into 2 ½” squares (jelly rolls or charm packs are easy to cut down…or I think we all probably have plenty of scraps for 20 – 2 ½” squares).


The back of the bag is a coordinating focal print – a fat quarter works well. If you do not have a fat quarter and are getting yardage at the quilt shop, I would suggest getting 1/3 yard to cover the width needed – this will give you plenty for two or three bags.


The interior of the bag (lining) is a coordinating print – a fat quarter works well. I suggest a light color solid/small print to be able to easily see the contents when in use. Again, if you do not have a fat quarter and are getting yardage at the quilt shop, I would suggest getting 1/3 yard to cover the width needed – this will give you plenty for two or three bags.


Fusible fleece and fusible interfacing – see pattern for requirements.


12” zipper – ANY zipper with a length of 12” OR longer will work.


3” piece of twill tape – this is optional – you can sew a tab, use 5/8” grosgrain ribbon, or I will have a small selection of twill tape with me for class use.


Zipper pull or charm – this is optional – the zipper doesn’t have to have a pull or charm; it is a finishing touch. Ribbon works well and I will talk about how to use leftover zipper tape (if your zipper is longer than 12”) for an easy coordinating pull.

 

What to bring:

You will want to have your sewing machine and basic sewing supplies with you. The Creative Space has a couple cutting stations with cutting mats (you’ll need to bring a rotary cutter and ruler), and a couple pressing stations with irons. You will want to have pins with you and if you have wonder clips, they may be beneficial. If your sewing machine has additional presser feet, such as: a patchwork foot or a zipper foot or an invisible zipper foot (or I like to use what is called a mega piping foot), please have those presser feet with you. The project can be completed without specialty presser feet, but they do make the project easier. We will be working with multiple layers, so I would suggest a 90/14 needle.

 

We will have a casual break for lunch – you may want to bring lunch or snacks with you.

 

Before class:

Please complete the cutting instructions found on page 1 of your pattern. You do not need to do any sewing before class, but you are welcome to sew your 2½” squares together (page 2, step 1) to get a head start.
