Pouch perfect

Photographic reminder to help everyone who attended my class to jog your memory and create more of your own bags/pouches with perfect boxed out corners. All seams are sewn with 1cm seam allowance, included in the pattern.

If you have lost your pattern please contact me and I will send you one.

This technique can be used to make a bag of any size and can be adjusted for a tapered cosmetics style bag. Use this pouch to perfect your technique and then start experimenting! Contact me if you need any help adjusting your pattern.

1. Attach your fabric (outer and lining) to the zip.

This can be done in one single step if you feel confident doing it; Make a sandwich of the zip in between the outer fabric and the lining. The zip should be face down on the right side of the outer fabric. The lining and outer fabric should be right sides together. Pin and sew.

2 Attach fabric to other side of zip


3 Sewing the edges of the pouch.

4 Boxing out the bottom.

Do this with both corners of the outer fabric.


5 Boxing out the top.

This is the trickiest part but make sure you have it all aligned and flat and pinned! before you sew. The lining and outer fabric are sew together with the zip sandwiched in between.


6 Turn your pouch inside out.

7 Finish off.
