Zippered Box Pouch Tutorial

Last year I posted a quilted zipper wristlet tutorial which has been very popular.  I’ve also received pictures and emails from dozens of you who turned that wristlet into a coin purse, cosmetic bag, diaper & wipes bag, etc.  You also requested a box version of the zippered pouch and I’ve finally delivered!












If you are a newbie and dread any project that requires a zipper… don’t! This is really easy to make and I designed my video tutorial especially thorough just for you!  The video is over 13 minutes long but trust me…. I walk you through every step! Just grab your supplies, laptop/iPad and make it alongside me.

To complete this box pouch you’ll need:

When you finish yours upload a picture to my Facebook page so we can see your cute little box pouch! We have at least five of these in my house already.  My son loves the one I made for him to keep his markers and crayons in. What are you going to use yours for?
