Purrfect Pouch Sewing Pattern


Updated May 12, 2023:

Each purchase will include a Production Edition of the pattern, which has been simplified for sewing in quantity for craft markets! The Production Edition only has 3 pattern pieces, the one zipper opening, and is 7.5" wide, 5" tall, 2" deep when finished. Want to be super speedy? I also offer acrylic templates for the Production Edition!

Pattern Description

The Purrfect Pouch sewing pattern is a small bag that is worn around the waist, or back, OR as a crossbody bag! There are two zippered pockets: a small one on the front panel (optional), and the main pocket, which is 3" deep (2" if using the production edition).

The downloadable PDFs include all pattern pieces and fully illustrated instructions on how to construct the bag. Note that this pattern is for intermediate to advanced sewists who have experience with zippers and gusset construction techniques. It is a bias-bound project, but don't be afraid! It's actually not that hard as the pattern is designed for quick assembly in mind for those of us who want to bulk produce for craft fairs!
