Kept Pouches

Pouches are some of the handiest things to sew. These Kept Pouches are some that I made in my Kept fabrics using Aneela Hoey’s Speedy Vinyl Pouches pattern.

There are many great things about the pattern and this type of project in general. First, the pattern is easy to follow and features 3 different size options.

Second, this is a great project for showcasing a print that you are excited about. Using the clear vinyl means you have a literal window into that fabric of your choosing as well as whatever you are storing in the pouch. I like to plan out the fabric that will be seen through the vinyl first, and then I build my other choices around it.

When I travel I like using little pouches to store and organize different things within a larger bag. A great example is thread–it’s nice to have it all together and in something that you can see it.

The largest pouch is also great for storing a few blocks, pattern and/or a project that you are working on. I find that I not only travel with my projects organized in pouches like this, but I also keep them organized in my studio this way too. It’s a great way to keep everything all together.

If you are new to working with vinyl and/or attaching zippers this is a great project to start with. Everything is flat and has squared edges, which makes it very approachable. Just take it one step at a time.

These Kept pouches were a great way to mix and match the new fabrics from the collection. They also make excellent gifts! (But I’m very tempted to keep all of these for myself..ha!)

    I really love everything you do…and I love aneela hoey as well…I have her first book and didn’t know she had published a second book…sewing. You make everything very nice…and I ordered that little roller from you CF and beforehand…I thought how can that little roller be very helpful…however CF…seems to love it. Well, now me and the little roller will not be parting ways anytime soon because that is how great it is…just like you CF. Everyone…CF only endorses products that actually bring joy to your life. 🙂
