Oh look...another zipper pouch!
This one is sort of the same as the others, but also different in that it is a new size (i.e. a size I don't have a template piece for yet).
I do want to make more zipper pouch templates. There are some other sizes/shapes to explore, they are fun to make, and they are that perfect mix of time/supplies/usefulness for those of you selling online or at shows.
So this one is a good size--5.5" wide x 3.5" high x 4.5" zipper opening. Now it seems like it would be perfect for many phones, but it's not. A phone 4" or shorter might be fine, and of course, the pouch can be used for many other small things instead.
I mention the phone because it brings up a point about zipper pouches and our modern day gadgets--to make them fit snuggly around things like phones and tablets, you really need install the zipper so it is longer than the top of the pouch (like this or this).
I've done this type of zipper technique a few times, but I'm not super comfortable with it yet. My results are not consistent, and I'm not really fond of how it looks with all that extra zipper dangling off the end.
But I have some ideas for improving my overall results (measuring, marking, and practice!), and also have an idea for making the end shorter, while also making it easier to sew it on. The reason for the extra length is mostly (I think...?) because it's challenging to cover the end neatly. The less zipper at the end, the harder it gets. However, I'm gonna solve that (let's hope... :0]). Stay tuned!
Anyway, back to this little pouch.
The floral fabric is from Yuwa. I don't have any info about the print name. I purchased it at Bolt and have never seen this particular print online.
The blue trim is lingerie elastic, and the blue fabric is an organic chambray from Fabric Depot. The back is also the chambray.
It's lined in Yuwa's Honeycomb Dots:
