How to Sew a Shark Zipper Pouch

I wanted to take a day to highlight one of the members of our Beginner Sewing Facebook group who took on the challenge to learn how to sew a shark zipper pouch.  Wilmie Fern has only been sewing for two months, and this is the first project they tackled that incorporated a zipper. As a newbie, this is quite the task.  And I must say an impressive first attempt! Want to make one of these yourself?

Look how amazing Wilmie did! Here are her pics she shared…

If you thought this was as adorable as I did, here is the video you can follow along with to make your own. You can also find a free pattern!

If you are like Wilmie and decide to take on this challenge, please share with our group and let us see how it went!

Happy sewing!

About Joan Mantini

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 An outlet that gives new sewists a free digital magazine geared for entry level sewing as an extra bonus!
