A Sidewalk Pouch Sewing Pattern+ Sewing Kits


Hello! Today I am excited to introduce my newest pattern {A Sidewalk Pouch} and limited sewing kits. Also share the story of the pattern and ideas with you.  

Many moons back as a new sewer. I first learned to sew by two hands; a single needle and a spool of thread. I wasn't sure if it was just a fun sewing course for me to passing time or something I'd felt in love with, and you all know that I felt big LOVE with patchwork many moons later.  I vivid remember the patchwork course I took was offered in four lessons (one month) and it was during hot summer month; one day a week and I could pick any day of the week and time, afternoon only.  

During sewing lessons, I learned to draft my own patterns and edited as I made mock ups and designs.  While the teacher was available at the time, I was able to ask questions and make improvements. {A Sidewalk Pouch} was the first few patterns that I learned to draft and sew. It didn't have a name at the time, it was a {pouch}.  

Over the years, I have used this pattern over and over and love the patchwork edition the most and have made many, many. This is a tiny pouch, just about a hand palm size and it fits just perfect on the side of any totes. So, {A Sidewalk Pouch} is just a perfect name for it. 



{A Sidewalk Pouch} was originally designed for fully hand sewing only, but over the time I have 
modified the pattern with partly hand sewing and partly machine stitching. This pouch making is for someone with zero sewing skills, just like how I started it. I'd say this pattern is a skill builder pouch that allows the maker to do simple patchworking, learn how to attach bias binding and learn to hand installing the zipper. 

It seemed and sounded scary installing zipper by hands, but it is not! Within this pattern, there are step by step photos to walk you through each sewing step. There are clear illustrations to guild you through the how to make the pouch and tips along.  

{A Sidewalk Pouch Pattern} is one of a kind sewing pattern that allows more hands on sewing experiences and learn to sew in a traditional method. This pouch is perfect for sewing for swaps, gifts, and I have use it for store my USB drives, sewing foots, small spool of threads, and perfect for small storage pouch. You'll LOVE it!!
