"S" is for Sequins #3

Sew: personalized sequined pouches

I've added purple sequined pouches to the line up.

And made a few more turquoise:

Here's how I made the sequined pouches:

1. Supplies:

drop cloth: 11" x 14"
med. weight fusible interfacing: 11" x 14"
cotton lining: 2 @ 11" x 7"
zipper: 11"
fabric letters (tutorial here)

2. Fuse interfacing to drop cloth.
Center letters on one end and pin in place:

3. Zig zag stitch letters in place:

4. Sew sequins over letters.

5. Place zipper face down at one end then one lining piece:

6. Straight stitch with zipper foot then top stitch on lining to keep from getting caught in zipper:

7. Repeat for other end of pouch using other side of zipper:

8. Right sides together stitch side seams closed and miter corners:

9. Clip corners, turn right side out, press lining side seams open, press lining opening up and in 1/2":

10. Top stitch lining closed.  Push down into pouch and press smooth:

  1. These are majorly cute! I love them. Very modern and colorful

  2. Where did you get such pretty colors in the sequins?

  3. Very cute! I know my girls would love these, and so would I for my own bag!

  4. I think these might be my favorite pouches yet...loved the terrycloth ones from way back too though. Thanks for sharing, Jaime. Hope you have a great weekend.
