A Pleated Pouch

Pleated zippered pouch tutorial

If you like to sew but you’ve never braved a zipper before, this little pleated pouch tutorial is a great place to start. To be perfectly honest, I didn’t even use a zipper foot (as the tutorial called for) and was just very careful to place the foot as close to the edge of the zipper as possible.

I love the versatility of this pouch. Increase or decrease the size, add some straps and make it into a little shoulder bag, dress up the fabric and lining for an evening clutch. Endless possibilities!

I discovered a perfectly sized piece of fabric from the Amy Butler Love collection, Water Bouquet in Midnight, in my stash. Lined with a coordinating pinkish lavender, this pleated pouch was the perfect wrapping for a pair of tiny hoop earrings for my beautiful sister’s birthday.
