The Split Pouch Pattern is super handy for toting on trips or for keeping your supplies handy. The pouch opens and snaps into two compartments that are perfect for on-the-go adventures whether that's sewing, school or travel!
This pattern comes with the option to add my Online Workshop to your order. See how it all comes together in this 2+ hour virtual workshop.
Three project sizes are included; Small (3" x 3" x 3"), Medium (5 1/2" x 5 1/2" x 3"), and Large (9" x 5 1/2" x 3").
Fabric + Supplies
Fabric - Quilting-weight cotton is great for Exterior or Lining. Canvas or heavier for Exterior works well too. Customize interfacing selection as you wish.
Interfacing - Pellon SF101 woven fusible interfacing (or similar) OR ByAnnie's Soft and Stable (or similar) are stabilizers I like using for this project.
Zipper - All-purpose, synthetic zippers work best for this project. Longer zippers are used and trimmed to fit while constructing the pouch. Zipper by the yard also works great.
I love using plastic snaps for this project such as these*.
Bias Tape Maker (3/4") if making your own.
Intermediate - you are comfortable installing zippers and snaps as well as working with 3-dimensional projects.
