Double sided tape
Basic sewing supplies
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″
Line up lining fabric 1/2″ from the bottom and 1″ from each side. Mark fabric with a pen or pencil.
Fold over 1/2″ seam allowance and iron.
Tuck fabric lining and vinyl into the seam crease.
It is hard to use pins on vinyl, so I use bulldog clips.
Add enough bulldog clips to secure.
Fold over and iron the seam allowance on the other side.
Pin in place.
Sew 1/4″ from the edge.
Add a second seam 1/4″ from the first.
Only one stitch is necessary on the opposite side.
Fold 1″ edge in half and iron. Take care not to iron the vinyl as it will melt.
Fold the edge fabric in half yet again. Only iron the fabric far from the vinyl.
Hold in place with bulldog clips on the vinyl and pins on a remaining fabric.
Sew in place using the same double stitch you used before. Repeat on the other side.
Place velcro on pouch and stick to fabric using double sided tape. Then stitch to fabric with your sewing machine.
Fold up sides and stitch closed.
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!
