Idea Pouch + Sew and Sell

michelle patterns

Use this PDF pattern to sew a pouch for your iPad, extra-large softcover Moleskine, or another composition-size notebook. There are two compartments–a large open pouch at the back for your gadget or notebook and a second section at the front. The pleated pocket has a built-in pen slip pocket. The pleats allow the pocket to open up wider so it is easy to reach inside and it will also hold a lot more than a flat pocket. It has an “inter-office memo” style closure using two buttons and a ribbon. This is a great way to show off some big buttons and also gives the pouch more flexibility as far as how much it can hold. Twine or other types of cording can be substituted for the ribbon–just tie one end securely to one of the buttons. This pattern is written in ENGLISH and is a PAPER & INK FRIENDLY 12-pages: 6-pages of text and color photo instructions + six pages of pattern pieces.
