I’ve been wanting a way to organize the little odds and ends that I use when I embroider. You know, scissors, needle book, pencils, etc. A zipper pouch seemed like a good option, so I found a blank one at the craft store.

Of course, I couldn’t just leave it plain, so I came up with a fun little design to embroider on the front. I’m sharing this free embroidery pattern with you today so you can make your own. Follow this simple zipper pouch tutorial if you’d like to sew the pouch instead of purchasing a blank one.

If the bag is pre-made, you won’t be able to see through it to trace your pattern very well. With all of the small details, I found that the best way to transfer the pattern was using a water-soluble stabilizer. Trace the design, stitch over it, and wash it away. I think heat transfer embroidery pens would work as well, but I’ve never tried them. You also won’t be able to use an embroidery hoop, but with the thick canvas fabric, that wasn’t a problem. If you are sewing your own zipper pouch, it will be easiest to do the embroidery before sewing the pieces together.

The letters are very small, so make sure to use shorter stitches than you normally would. It’s just a simple back stitch, but it can get a bit tricky around all of the curves.

I’m so excited to have this cute sewing pouch for all of my little embroidery supplies! Now, if I could just stop singing the “Do-Re-Mi” song from The Sound of Music, that would be great.

  1. The sewing pouch and the tutorial to make your own pouch look like they are very different in size. Can you tell me what size the sewing pouch is? Thank you!
