Hello! I’m wondering what project can sew for my next project, I came out an idea of sewing this small little wallet pouch. With easy and beautiful design fabric which I bought from my local retailer shop.
I’m Posting this post on How to sew a Zip wallet/Pouch. I just randomly did this and I will guide thru step by step.
Materials you need:
– needle & thread (normal, polyester, hand sew type) * for needle size to use, just test thru a needle which is easy to go thru fabric, go with the one. Thread with color match your fabric.
– pair of scissor
– Zipper (cheap one will do, go ahead and use good one as your choice.)
– Cotton fabric (cheap one with design if your choice)
– ruler and paper for measuring and templates
Fold the fabric to 2 pieces, Cut fabric with size length 20cm, width 13cm. Same forfabric and lining.
turn the fabric to the face from good side to good side and sew the side with straight or Mattress stitch. Only sew left and right side. Leave the top side for the zipper.
So when you turn back outside, it will look like this. With nice hem. This is why I love to use this stitch.
Same goes to the lining, sew 2 side.
Once you’re done, Slot the lining in to the main fabric facing good side.
Align the zip to the fabric and sew on. You may use needle to mark the part that you want to sew, it’s makes it easier.
For the ending of the zip, you can sew it to the fabric from the inside. Try to adjust then sew to secure it.
And you’re done!
Came across one of my local shop that sells most of the crafts accessories, i found a leather label which can match my wallet. It’s turns out perfectly fit my wallet. I love this little label is a little girl with a little pet dog. bought it at $3.50. It’s very easy to put on, come with a small round pin for the 4 sides hole. Just have to mark out the position which you want it to put on the fabric. And you are done! One hand sew wallet with a label on it. Just like your brand! Enjoy!
