Chevron Rainbow Pouch

Hi, this is Jenifer here with you today to share a cute, fun project.  I have made this simple zippered pouch.  Imagine the possibilities… I am going to use mine as a little sewing kit but you could put pens, makeup or any fun thing you would like to store in there.  It would be a great little gift or stocking stuffer.

Cut out 2 pieces of canvas 9×7 and 2 pieces of desired lining fabric.

Place your pieces of ribbon on the canvas in desired order and sew them down, leaving a ½” at the top and the bottom for the seams.

Once you have the ribbons sewn down then base the lining to the ribbon fabric at the top ½”, iron the ½” at the top and sew the zipper on each side.  Unzip the zipper a little so you can turn the pouch inside out and sew the side and bottom seams.  Clip the corners, turn inside out and you are done.  I just can’t seem to get enough of these May Arts flowers so I layered them and attached them to both sides to give it a little something extra.

Here is the pouch open.
