Ten Free Zippered Pouch Tutorials...

Zippered pouches, zippered purses or zippered bags; whatever you care to call them, a girl just can't have too many. They have so many uses: makeup bags, toiletry bags, coin purses, pencil cases, keychains and storage for any number of items.

Today I'm showcasing ten tutorials from our extensive Purses, Clutches & Pouches collection, here at Threading My Way. Each detailed tutorial contains step by step instructions and lots of photos, so you can make your own zippered pouch.

Many people are scared of zips, until they give it a go. The only way to conquer that fear, is to just get in and sew one. They're really not that hard. Have you ever made a zippered pouch?
