vintage-style zippered pouch

I have been on a wee bit of a sewing spree just lately. Not a marathon session or anything, more a case of a few stolen moments in my sewing room …

Anyhow, the result is that I have FINALLY managed to put together a pattern for my little vintage-style zippered pouch, which is now available as an instant download in my Etsy shop.

The pattern for this vintage-style zippered pouch is available in my Etsy pattern shop

I’ve written it in the style of a step-by-step tutorial and have included almost 50 close-up colour photos to help you along, The cool part about it being a digital file is that you can zoom right on in to the photos on your computer if you want to see the details even more closely!


I have made lots of these little cuties for friends and family now, but this one I will definitely be keeping for my very own 🙂

And whilst I was in a creative mood, I came across a great tutorial for a fabric notebook cover and enjoyed putting together my own version from the left over fabric scraps.

They make a lovely set … don’t you think?



 Happy stitching everyone!

  1. Thanks Natalie for the pattern for this beautiful pouch, I’ve downloaded it along with your lovely hexie needle case. I’m hoping to do a couple of these as Christmas presents, of course mine will never be as beautiful as the pouch I won from you, but I’ll give it my best shot. LOL

      • Oh Natalie don’t hold your breath lol but when I do it, probably the pouch as I can refer to the real thing, I’ll be sure and share it. Xx

      • Hi Natalie, I sent you an email but it’s ok, I’ve figured it out. Finished my pouch this afternoon and have to say, it doesn’t look like yours. Few mistakes that will help me next time. Your photos were invaluable, thank you. I’m quiet pleased with the result but know I can improve. 🙂

Thank you so much for visiting and taking the time to leave a comment. I love to hear what you have to say - it really does brighten my day! Natalie x
