The Split Pouch Pattern is super handy for toting on trips or for keeping your supplies handy. The pouch opens and snaps into two compartments that are perfect for on-the-go adventures whether that's sewing, school or travel!

Project Size:

  • Small 3" x 3" x 3"
  • Medium 5.5" x 5.5" x 3″
  • Large 9" x 5.5" x 3"

Fabric + Supplies:

Quilting-weight cotton is great for Exterior or Lining. Canvas or heavier for Exterior works well too. Customize interfacing selection as you wish.

Pellon SF101 woven fusible interfacing (or similar) OR ByAnnie's Soft and Stable (or similar) are stabilizers I like using for this project.

All-purpose, synthetic zippers work best for this project. Longer zippers are used and trimmed to fit while constructing the pouch. Zipper by the yard also works great.

Carolyn loves using plastic snaps for this project such as these*.
