If you follow us on instagram, you'll have seen me post about these about a two months ago. I was at the end of my pregnancy and getting stir crazy for our little girl to come. So even though I could barely bend over and couldn't breath after walking up one step,I had to do something to keep me sane. These see through zipper pouches were one of those projects.
They're probably my favorite and most satisfying sewing projects this year. They were easy to make and they were a perfect use for my hoarding pile of scrap fabrics. I love projects that I can use my scraps on. If your a scrap hoarder like me, then these see through zipper pouches are for you!
DIY See-Through Zipper Pouches Tutorial
Fabric or your favorite scraps
Clear Vinyl/plastic - I recommend at least 8 gauge or higher, but 6 would work too (you can buy it Joanns)
||1|| Cut two pieces of fabric and one clear plastic piece to the same size (one fabric piece will be the outside of pouch and the other fabric piece will be the inside what you can see through plastic). The great thing about this project is you can use scraps and cut it to whatever size you want. If you want to use your small scraps up, sew them together then cut your plastic to that size.
||2|| place zipper under plastic piece and top stitch the zipper to the plastic. Within the area you sewed, carefully cut the plastic to reveal the zipper.
Then turn the binding over the pouch and the top stitch it on. Go HERE for a more detail tutorial on adding binding .
And of course, Captain Awesome requested a Star Wars bag for him for his Dinosaurs. In his universe, dinosaurs and Jedi mingle together. Honestly though, some of the Star Wars creatures make dinosaurs look very domestic. And of course, one of the bags soon became home to his little animals as well. What would you put in your see through zipper pouches?
