Butterfly Zipper Pouch

Featured on Singer.com

Have you heard of the piecing technique yet? If not, I wanted to introduce it to you with this lovely butterfly zipper pouch featured on Singer.com.  If you are already familiar with it, you can still enjoy making this summer-themed project featuring an adorable fabric origami butterfly.

Although beginners can most certainly attempt this tutorial, I am rating it as an intermediate beginner project. Chances are you will be learning a new technique, whether it be sewing in a zipper, learning the piecing technique, or creating the origami butterfly, so knowing your way around your sewing machine is a good idea to be able to confidently learn how to make this pouch.

If you confidently know your way around your sewing machine, I would like to challenge you to add a wrist strap to this project. Who is up for it?

4 assorted fat eighths – Fabric A main fabric
¼ yard print fabric – Fabric B lining
Batting

Ready to Try Making a Butterfly Zipper Pouch?

Do you have all of your supplies ready and want to take a closer look at how this is made? My tip for you is to read thru the tutorial twice. If more than two things are questionable, practice them to see if you can do it before starting to sew your butterfly zipper pouch. And remember, the first one is usually a trial! Don’t be discouraged if it does not come out perfectly. The motto “third time’s a charm” applies to new sewing projects. So, be patient and enjoy learning a few new things.

After several years of being the Facebook page owner at Beginner Sewing, I noticed there was a desperate need to have a single go-to spot for members to be able to find answers to their common questions, get some useful tips & tricks, as well as find reputable places to purchase sewing products online. Taking my role as a trade publication editor by day, and combining it with my knowledge of frequently requested beginner sewing advice, I created www.beginner-sewing.com. An outlet that gives new sewists a free digital magazine geared for entry level sewing as an extra bonus!
