Diagonal Zip Pouch VIDEO TUTORIAL



Cut the faux leather. You can make it any size you want. For this zip pouch I just cut a rectangle of faux leather measuring 9 x 19″ / 23 x 48cm,

Then cut along one of the diagonals. That’s right you can make two pouches out of the rectangle!


Fold the cut piece in half, aligning the bottom edge so that a small triangle piece sticks out about 3 inches. Cut that piece.


Place the faux leather piece with the right side up on your workspace. Place the half zipper (without the zipper pull) under the part that was cut at a diagonal. The zipper should be about 1″ (2.5cm) longer than the leather. Use the clips to hold it in place. Sew using a zipper foot


Fold the faux leather piece in half again, aligning the bottom edge, fold the top down so the zipper parts meet.


Insert the zipper pull: cut a small piece of the zipper teeth on one of the sides. Meet the zipper sides and carefully slide in the zipper pull.

Pull it halfway


Turn the zip pouch inside out and align the edges. Use clips to hold it in place


Stitch along the side and the bottom of the zip pouch. Clip the corners and cut the excess zipper


Turn the zip pouch right side out, carefully poking out the corners with a dull tool. Voila The zip pouch is ready
