Goodie Pouch



The perfect addition to any bag, this little pouch is lined with Rip Stop Nylon so toys or snacks won’t get lint on them {or get your fabric wet or greasy!}, and the handle has a swivel clip so it can be fastened to a stroller, purse strap, or somewhere else convenient!  Made with a few leftover Jelly Roll strips, it’s a quick project that will be great for kids.

  • 4 Jelly Roll Strips cut to 13″ outside
  • 2 – 2 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ rectangles for zipper tabs
  • 1 Jelly Roll Strip cut to 11″ for handle
  • 8 1/2″ x 13″ Pellon SF101 Shape-Flex woven interfacing
  • 2 – 8 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ rectangles Rip Stop Nylon Fabric {similar to what a kite or windbreaker would be made from,it has little grid squares on it that you cannot see in the photographs}
  • 9″ Long Pull Zipper {my favorite type of zipper!}
  • 1 1/2″ Swivel Clip

Start by piecing four jelly roll strips together lengthwise with a 1/4″ seam allowance, then fuse the interfacing to the wrong side.  Quilt as desired {I quilted 1/8″ from each seam}:

Cut in half to make 2 – 8 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ rectangles, set aside.  Fold the handle piece in half lengthwise, wrong sides together, press. 

Then open and fold the raw edges toward the center, wrong sides together, press.  Open handle and fold 1/4″ of one short edge down.  Refold the handle piece along pressed lines.  Stitch along the open edge.  Feed the short folded edge through the swivel clip, stitch in place.

Stitch the handle 1/2″ from one top edge of one of the outside pieces.

Fold the two 2 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ rectangles in half {1 1/4″ x 1 1/2″}, then turn 1/4″ toward center on each side, press.  Trim zipper to length of bag and sew the rectangles onto the zipper.

Place the zipper face down on the pouch piece, the closed zipper pull should be on the same side as the handle.  Then place the nylon lining piece on top of the zipper, use a zipper foot and stitch in place.  Fold the pieces wrong side together.  Then place the zipper face down on the other outer piece {the two outer pieces will be right sides together}, and then put the remaining lining piece on top, stitch along zipper.

Fold the pieces so that the right sides of the pouch are together and the lining is together {as shown above} and stitch 3/8″ around the bag, leaving a 3″ opening along the bottom of the lining {note: make sure the zipper is partially unzipped}.  Turn the bag right sides out.  Stitch the opening closed on the outside of the lining.  Then, stuff the lining inside the bag and it is finished!

One cute little pouch that won’t sink to the bottom of your bag, perfect for any outing!

 If you make one of these, I’d love for you to share it in the Moda Bake Shop Flickr Group and the Clover & Violet Flickr Group!
