DIY Zippered Box Pouch Tutorial


 A fun little pouch to store sewing notions and other small accessories  







The finished size of the  Pouch measures at :   3 1/4” (L) x 2 1/2” (H) x 2 1/2” (W)
- Please use 1/4” seam allowance throughout unless otherwise specified.
- For topstitch, please topstitch 1/8” away from the edge using a longer stitch length of 3.00mm

Materials Required :

Fabrics : 10” square for contrast exterior fabric
10” square for exterior fabric
10” square for lining fabric
10” square for binding fabric (optional)
Interfacing :
10” square fusible fleece
(I use Pellon 987F for mine ☺)
Cotton Webbing : size 1” x length 3”
Zipper : 6” zipper

Cutting Instructions :
Contrast exterior fabric : 2pcs of 6 1/2” (L) x 1 1/2” (W)
Exterior fabric :
1pc of 6 1/2” (L) x 8” (W)
Lining fabric :
1pc of 6 1/2” (L) x 10” (W)
Binding fabric (optional) :
6pcs of 1 1/4” (L) x 3” (W)



Place exterior fabric right side up and contrast exterior fabric right side down. Both will be right sides facing each other. Ensure that the edges are aligned. Pin in place and sew along the edge as shown. Repeat the same for the other side. With wrong side facing up, press the seam allowance inwards as shown (towards exterior fabric)


Fuse fusible fleece per manufacturer’s directions to the completed exterior fabric. Quilt as you like. For my cross hatch design, I quilt only on the exterior fabric (not on the contrast exterior fabric), I draw a line using water soluble pen starting from one corner to the other. The interval of each line is 1” space.



Place lining fabric right side up, center the zipper (right side up) with the zipper pull on the right. Place the completed exterior fabric right side down on top of your lining fabric + zipper. Ensure that the edges are aligned and zipper is centered as shown. Pin in place and sew along the edge using your zipper foot.



Flip wrong sides together and press. Top stitch along the edge as shown.


Place the other end of the lining fabric right side up, center the zipper (right side up) with the zipper pull on the left side this time. Place the other end of the completed exterior fabric right side down on top as shown. Ensure that the edges are aligned and zipper is centered. Pin in place and sew along the edge using your zipper foot.


Unzip the zipper and turn the pouch right side out. The wrong side of the lining fabric and the completed exterior fabric will be facing each other. Press on the zipper side that you have just sewn and top stitch along the edge as shown.



Turn the pouch inside out. Unzip the zipper halfway and center the zipper. Ensure that each side is 2 1/2” as shown. Pin in place and sew along the side edge as shown.
Repeat the same for the other side. Trim off the zipper ends.


Cut a rectangle measuring 1 1/4” in length and 1” in width on all four corners as shown.




For the raw edges on the inside of the pouch, you may choose to
Option 1 : overlock, serge, zigzag the seams or Option 2 : bind the seams.
In the next few steps, I will share how I bind the seams.





Option 1 : overlock, serge or zigzag on both side edges

Option 2 : We will be using single fold binding method ☺
Place one piece of 3” x 1 1/4” binding right side
down on top of the pouch. Both will be right side
facing each other. Ensure that the edges are aligned. Pin in place and sew along the side edge as shown. Turn your pouch over, carefully turn the binding over and fold the raw edge of the binding inwards and fold again as shown. Ensure that your folded binding covers the pouch sewn line. Clip in place and hand stitch the binding in place. Repeat the same for the other side.



Unzip the zipper pouch. On the side with the zipper pull, match up the corner edges as shown. Ensure that the binding or overlock seams is press down. Pin in place and sew along the corner edge as shown.



With the zipper pouch unzip, on the opposite side of the zipper pull, insert and center the cotton webbing as shown. Ensure that the edges of the cotton webbing and the corner edge of the pouch are aligned. With the binding or overlock seams press down, pin in place and sew along the corner edge as shown.

Turn the pouch right side out to make sure that the pouch is nicely boxed. All four top corners should look as shown in circle. Turn the pouch wrong side out again.



Option 1 : overlock, serge or zigzag on all four corner edge

Option 2 : Repeat the same single fold method that we have use earlier, but this time fold in the sides as shown before folding in the raw edges of the binding twice.
Repeat the same for all four corner edge.

Your  Pouch is now complete!
