"P" is for Plaid Pouches

Sew: personalized plaid pouches

Sturdy canvas pouches lined with plaid and plaid monograms.

I used a great pattern from Noodlehead here to make these pouches:

For contrast I added plaid to the base of the larger size and from the side you can see just how deep and wide this pouch is - it can hold a lot!

Here's how to make the plaid pouches:

1. Following the pattern from Noodlehead cut out your pieces:

2. Add the contrast bottom first:

3. Then line up the fabric letter and zig zag stitch around edge:

4. Keep following the Noodlehead instructions and add your zipper:

5. Sew side seams, leave an opening in bottom and miter corners:

6. Turn right side out, press and topstitch.
Then add zipper end fabric cover:
