"B" is for Baby Shower

Sew: monogrammed seersucker pouches

Party favors for a boy baby shower.

Light blue seersucker on the exterior with navy lining and monograms:

Here's how I made the pouches:

1. Supplies:

1 - light blue seersucker fabric @ 10" x 14"
1 - med. fusible interfacing @ 10" x 14"
2 -Kona nightfall navy fabric @ 10" x 7"
1 - 9" white zipper
5/8" navy grosgrain ribbon

2. Fuse interfacing to wrong side of seersucker.
3. Pin letter centered on one half, zigzag stitch in place.
4. Place zipper face down on one end then one piece of lining, stitch:

5. Repeat for other side with other lining piece.
Top stitch lining down on interior to prevent from getting caught in zipper:

6. Right sides together sew side seams and miter corners:

7. Clip miters off to alleviate bulk:

8. Turn right side out, press raw edge of lining in 1/2" and straight stitch closed:

9. Push lining down into pouch and press smooth.

  1. These are so fun! What a great idea as a shower favor. I must pin this as a future gift idea! I'm visiting from The Shabby Nest.

  2. Just dropping by from Freckled Laundry.

    What a great idea for a party favour! They are certainly something that will get used. I love having zippered bags to keep things in.

  3. You know I love your little pouches! I think that's an awesome boy baby shower favor. As always, thank you for sharing your lovely things over at my place! xo
