Having a nosey on Pinterest the other night I came across triangle pouches! This was a total revelation to me, they are super cute and not too much different in construction to the wee zipper pouches I had made before.
With help from this tutorial from Crafty Gemini I put together this cute pouch.
I could definitely refine my technique a bit. I’d like the top of the zip to look a bit tidier but I think it didn’t turn out too badly for a first go! I can see lots of these in my future, in lots of different sizes for holding all my bits and pieces.
This is a great pattern for using up scrappy bits of leftover fabric. I used two 9×5 inch pieces of polycotton. I interfaced the exterior with firm interfacing and medium interfacing on the interior to give it enough body to stand up without adding too much bulk. I used a 7 inch closed end zip but the next time I think I’ll be a bit more careful with the placement. It would look a bit better with the zip top at the top of the pouch rather than centering the fabric on the zip, which is what I did.
All in all a very versatile method for making cute pouches and I can’t wait to make some more!
