Ok, yeah we do it basically the same way, except I shortcut in one of the steps. I bet you can figure out which step that is, too.


Thank you so much for another fabulous tutorial - it may just help me get past my zipper-phobia - yay!!

I have zipper-phobia, too! It really limits me with sewing and knitting!

Thanks for the tutorial, Caro. I should practice with zippers on cute little things like this, then when I get to installing a zipper in a handknit, I'll be more confident!

That fabric is ahh-dorable.


No thank you, I'm allergic to zippers. It's so cute, though,


Ah lazy me. My heart leap into my throat hoping the photos I saw meant there would be more of these on your etsy page! Thank you for the tutorial, though! Since my sewing machine is lacking a zipper foot, I will keep holding out for etsy ;)


I'm hoping some day I'll be able to put this tutorial to good use. But first things first, I need one of those ol' sewing machines.


Oh thank you for posting this! I'm going to have to add you to my flickr friends. I've been wanting to learn how to make these!


Thanks! I was just about to look for the tutorial I used the previous time I made a zippered pouch, and there, as from heaven, appears yours.


Nice tutorial, I shall have to sew one up. I always love little pouches, I like this one has a wrist strap on it. Great!


Thanks for the great tutorial!


I have ziper fobia too!! But today is a new day in my life... Just now I´m going to start sewing this wristlet... Will I survive? lol


Wow! I'm going to attempt this wristlet with some left over canvas from another project- this is really cute! And it will help me get over my zipper phobia, too!


Yeah! Great tutorial! I just made a travel bag for my make-up and it is the perfect size. Thank you, thank you, thank you!


I just wanted to let you know that I have added a link to your blog on mine, I really love the way that you explained this project, it really makes it easy to understand.


Oh, this is so cute. I forgot to tell you that I made one and posted a photo to my blog. Thanks for the tutorial!


I also made one (and a variation) and posted them at my blog too. Thanks for the awesome instructions!


Thanks so much. I tried following another tutorial but like your's better - marking the length of the zipper seams for the outside fabric is crucial I think. Or at least I'm hoping if I follow your directions I'll avoid the enormous, unsewable lump where the zipper goes. Thanks!


I love your tutorial. I had ugly end bits of the zipper sticking out when I followed another zipper tutorial. When I followed your tutorial, the problem disappeared. Thanks a million. Check out my pouch/wristlet at

Thanks for posting this great tutorial. I only just became interested in working with anything other than felt [because I was a little too scared to] and this made it so much easier. I posted a picture of my first zippered purse on my flickr if you'd like to see?


I did this today - and it turned out so cute. Modified it a bit as I was using it for a stethoscope holder (I'm in nursing school - as is the giftee) - so it was longer and had some padding added to it. But it looks GREAT. Now I can't wait to make a little one for me!


Thank you! this tutorial is fantastic! i'm going to head to Savers on the weekend and pick up the bag of zippers thats be taunting me for the last month and give this a shot!


I tried making this wristlet today and it worked out well. I put in a pocket in the inside and it worked out well. The pictures are on my blog here: http://haleyarden.blogspot.com/2008/08/i-made-this-pouchwristlet-today-with.html Thanks for the tutorial!!


What a nice idea!


Awesome tutorial! quick question though -- where do you get your labels from? I've looked everywhere, with no success.


I thought I was the only one in this world who has zipper fobia...LOL
One little thing on my list I had accomplished. Thank you so much for this tutorial.
