Introducing the Super Simple Everyday Pouch! This is a lined zipper pouch with curved bottom corners that can be customized in endless ways.
In this step-by-step tutorial we’ll be inserting a zipper, sewing basic seams, top & edge stitching & trimming seam allowances.
I added a custom woven label to the lining of my pouch, but this is optional.
You can make this zipper pouch in one afternoon – including tracing + cutting out pattern pieces. Fat quarter + scrap friendly!

For this project, I recommend using woven (non-stretchy) fabric of a medium weight. My version features interfaced canvas and laminated cotton for the lining. If you do use quilting cotton for the main fabric, it’s best to interface (or quilt) the fabric for more stability. You can use Pellon ShapeFlex 101, one-sided fusible such as Pellon 987F Fusible Fleece, or foam stabilizer if you are doing a quilted version.
