How To Make A Zippered Pouch-Video
There are hundreds of make-up bags for women, and travel pouches for both women and men in all sizes, shapes, colors, and fabrics, but there is nothing like making your own. Storing extra make-up, or extra razors for the guys, leaving a spare pouch with personal items for work, you can have one in your vehicle for convenience. You can one at your companion’s home, or a family member’s when you visit is a great idea. They make a great gift for everyone, and you can fill them up with what you know the person would like or may need.
When you travel specific sizes of shampoo for example, are needed since you don’t have to bring a full sized bottle. Mouthwash, deodorant, shaver, men’s razors, individually wrapped moist wipes, travel toothbrush and toothpaste, lip balm, nail polish remover pads, your contact lens case, jewelry, and many other items needed for the occasion.
Making your own zippered pouch is a perfect project, whether for yourself, a family member or a friend. You can choose the fabric, pattern, color, and size, customizing it your way. Embellishing it can be fun by adding a flower, or something for the guys. You can add beads, studs, jeweled stones, sequins, anything you find to make it interesting and more personal.
I chose this video tutorial because the zippered box pouch is really nice and looks professionally made. It is a perfect size, although you can make it smaller or larger by adjusting the fabric and zipper size. It has lining which makes it solid and not to soft but firm and keeps its shape. It is also washable. The instructions are easy to follow, and very thorough going step by step. A basic zipper foot is all you need. It’s only ten minutes long since she fast-forwards it while finishing the stitching.
It’s best to watch the whole video first to be familiar with what has to be done, and to have all the items you need ready. One of the best things is how you can pause the video when needed. Before you know it, you will have a great zippered pouch that you made on your own, and I’m sure you will have fun making this one.
I have another article, Making Your Own Purse Organizer where you make an organizer for your purse or handbag along with making one for the guys to throw in their bag or vehicles to keep their smaller things in one place. It only takes twenty minutes and is also a great idea for a gift!
