Zippered Felt Pouches

My surface design group did some clamp dyed felt last week that I wrote about on the Felting and Fiber Studio recently.  I decided to make some zippered pouches out of the felt. The only problem was that I have never sewn in a zipper before. I do a lot of sewing but it’s mainly free motion embroidery instead of sewing clothing or functional items. Luckily, there are tons of videos on YouTube that show how to make a zippered pouch.

So I bought a bunch of 7-9″ zippers and started sewing. This first one would work well for a make up bag as it’s about 7-8″ long.

Here’s the other side of the bag.

And the bags are fully lined. I used some of my screen printed fabric for lining.

I am planning on making a bunch of these and selling them at the store.

Then I made a smaller coin purse size.

And the lining is more of my screen printed and then over dyed fabric. These don’t take too long to put together and I think the zippers look OK so more to come!

  1. They look great and I think they’ll sell well. The linings are fab – if I had one I’d leave the zip open so everyone could see the lining!

  2. I love the linings. I’m not a big fan of sewing in zippers, but it does finish it nicely especially when you have a lining.

Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear your comments so please let me know what you think.
