Velcro Pouch-01

Materials:

Fabric
Velcro
Regular scissors
Clear vinyl
Bulldog clips
Double sided tape

Basic sewing supplies

Velcro Pouch-02

Cut fabric and vinyl.  If you don’t have a rotary cutter, use regular scissors instead of fabric scissors to cut your vinyl.

Blue pouch dimensions: 12.5″ x 10.5″, lining 6.5″ x 8.5″
Purple pouch dimensions: 16.5″ x 8″, lining 8.5″ x 6″

Velcro Pouch-03

Line up lining fabric 1/2″ from the bottom and 1″ from each side.  Mark fabric with a pen or pencil.

Velcro Pouch-04

Fold over 1/2″ seam allowance and iron.

Velcro Pouch-05

Velcro Pouch-06

Tuck fabric lining and vinyl into the seam crease.

Velcro Pouch-07

It is hard to use pins on vinyl, so I use bulldog clips.

Velcro Pouch-08

Add enough bulldog clips to secure.

Velcro Pouch-09

Fold over and iron the seam allowance on the other side.

Velcro Pouch-11

Pin in place.

Velcro Pouch-10

Velcro Pouch-12

Sew 1/4″ from the edge.

Velcro Pouch-13

Add a second seam 1/4″ from the first.

Velcro Pouch-14

Only one stitch is necessary on the opposite side.

Velcro Pouch-15

Fold 1″ edge in half and iron.  Take care not to iron the vinyl as it will melt.

Velcro Pouch-16

Fold the edge fabric in half yet again.  Only iron the fabric far from the vinyl.

Velcro Pouch-17

Hold in place with bulldog clips on the vinyl and pins on a remaining fabric.

Velcro Pouch-18

Sew in place using the same double stitch you used before.  Repeat on the other side.

Velcro Pouch-19

Place velcro on pouch and stick to fabric using double sided tape.  Then stitch to fabric with your sewing machine.

Velcro Pouch-20

Fold up sides and stitch closed.

Velcro Pouch-21

Velcro Pouch-22

You can add a decorative stitch down the middle of the vinyl if you wish.  You will be sewing directly on the vinyl, so to prevent sticking you can use a teflon coated foot.  If you don’t have one, I’ve read online that you can put clear tape on the bottom of your regular foot and that it works just the same.  Good luck and have fun!
