This tutorial is for an easy zippered pouch with a  nautical theme – it is perfect to carry your essentials during the summer! You can use it as a makeup bag or as a wristlet to carry your sunglasses, sunblock, lip-gloss, keys, phone, and other small items.

For the nautical theme I used a premier print slub fabric with navy blue and white stripes and red fabric for the lining and applique. To compliment the nautical look, I used red zipper with matching anchor pull.

You can also add a long strap to turn the pouch into a crossbody bag!

I included instructions in how to prepare and attach the applique – enter your email in the form included in this post to receive the applique templates.  This technique can also be used on the double zipper pouch.

I’ll also show you how to install the D-ring tabs using rivets.

Fusing Interfacing

Iron to the fusible fleece and SF101 interfacing to the wrong side of the corresponding fabric pieces using the manufacturer’s directions.

 

Prepare the zipper tabs

  • Cut the 1 1/4″ x 4 piece in half  to have 2 pieces that are 1 1/4″ x 2″
  • Fold each tab wrong sides together, matching the short side.  Open and fold the short edges to the middle and press

 

Prepare the zippers

Cut your zipper exactly 8.5″ long.

  • Insert the anchor zipper pull before attaching the zipper tabs.
  • Place the Zipper in the zipper tab piece and sew across the zipper tape.
