leather bottom pouch

Pouches are my absolute favorite thing to sew. So, when I noticed the other day how very "tired" the pouch I was using as my wallet looked, I was more than happy to clear my schedule and make myself a replacement pouch.

The pouch is inspired by Leather Bottom Zipper Pouch from Krista's fantastic book Beyond Cotton.

I made it a bit smaller than the one in Krista's book and I added a zipper pocket on the outside. I also added a removable wrist strap (mostly so I could use some fun hardware),

and super practical card slots.

I think it's a perfect addition to my other everyday pouches. I like to keep them all in my bag as they help me stay organized and actually find what I need without having to dump the contents of my bag every time I look for a chapstick or a pen.

Thanks for stopping by, friends. Svetlana

  4. Dear Svetlana,

    I just finished reading your entire blog front to back.
    I really enjoyed reading and seeing things you've made.
    I've been into sewing a year or so now and have been making stamps for quite a while.
    Lately I have been starting to stamp my own fabric too. I love with your latest "mushroom" design, that is so beautiful.
    I am intrigued by screenprinting, I'll see, maybe one day I'll give it a shot.
    (Always a thousand ideas right?) Anyway, I thought it would be nice to say Hi,
    since I've been reading for a while now. Keep making beautiful things!
    Love from the Netherlands,


  5. I love everything about this zipper pouch!

  6. Beautiful! I love that you have multiple pouches to stay organized! Some day....

  7. Your fabric is beautiful and I really love your pouches. I'm not very good at "customizing" and you do such a great job with that.

  8. I sure wish you would add this pattern and fabric as a kit in your Etsy store. Love it.
