Hi everyone!

These are a few pleated pouches that I've made in the last few days.  They are fairly easy to make, and are a great way to use scraps of fabric.  (I'm all about the scraps!)  The top band of these pouches is about 5" wide, and the pouches are about 6" long, so you really don't need much fabric at all.  The shape of the pouch part is a bit tricky, depending on the fabric you are using -- I had to resew these pouches a few times.

The first 3 of these pouches are made of second-hand fabrics:







For this last one, I dipped into my new fabric stash... but it was a present for a friend so that's okay...


Thanks so much for looking!  I'm all ears if you have any tips or suggestions for this kind of pouch!

Oh wow! What a great idea for using up those small scraps that I keep saying will become part of a quilt I have yet to start!

Now if only I could find my zippers...

Thanks for the inspiration!

Oooh cute!!!! I like the second one. You have given me a great idea -in the right fabric they would make great little evening purses - may have to raid the silk stash!!! I was very lucky to get some from my sister in law who was cleaning out her garage and found a box of fabrics - mostly heavy silks - that had belonged to our late mother in  law!!!!

Thanks so much everyone!  These were really fun to make.  I think that because they're just small pouches and not purses, the next batch I make try using brighter and mismatched fabrics...

Hey RetroAddict86

Thanks! 

I actually learned how to make zippered pouches from this really good tutorial by e.r.i.k.a.:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=22875.0

For this pouch:

Sew pleats into 2 pieces of thick fabric (corduroy, canvas, etc) and cut into a round shape
Sew a strip of fabric on top of that, over the pleats, for each of the 2 pieces
Then you would trace that shape for the lining of the pouch
After that, you would use those 4 pieces (2 exterior pieces with pleated fabric and strip of fabric sewn together, and two lining pieces) and follow the zippered pouch tutorial by e.r.i.k.a.

I hope that helps!
