Sew Zipper Card Pouch

I have been using the previous zipper card pouch for quite some time and it is time for an uplift on the pattern and tutorial while sewing a new one for myself. Here is the improved version of the zipper card pouch.

There are a few upgrades done on this zipper card pouch design. First, it can store more cards even the size of the zipper card pouch remain the same, 4 1/2″ x 3 1/4″. The reason behind of the bigger storage space is because I have hidden the bulky seam allowance inside the zipper card pouch. Second, it has better divider slots. There are 2 dividers thus make up 3 parts in the pouch which can give better organization to your cards. Third, there are improvements on the overall design on the zipper card pouch to make the zipper glide easier.

I find that this zipper card pouch is a great as a small little purse. Slot in your credit card, identity card and same small change to bring out for tea break. Use a solid color fabric or denim to sew for men, great as a Father’s Day or birthday gift too 🙂

This zipper card pouch pattern and tutorial is easier to understand. In order to make the design and pattern flawless, you will need to hand sew a little. I wish you happy sewing and have a nice day always 🙂

  5. Wonderful, impossible to resist, yesterday afternoon I made one for myself. Thank you very much for sharing!

  6. Where did you get that zipper? Most of the zippers I see in the craft stores around me are boring!

  7. Where did you get the cute fabric ?

  10. This is exactly the wallet style I was looking for, thank you for posting it for free! I also appreciate the hard work that went into making it more straightforward and streamlined compared to the previous pattern. In case you would like some feedback, here is my experience so far (I’m about half way done). I had trouble making the zipper ends look nice but figured out a fix using some ribbon. I was also confused by the big pattern piece. It says “Lining” which I interpreted to mean to use the lining fabric for it but the photos indicate that it should be made in the main fabric. Thanks again for the project!

  11. I have try to sew pouch with zipper before, I have a problem sewing the zip. This tutorial really help me a lot. I can’t wait to start my new project. Thanks a lot Joanne.

  12. Your zipper pouch looks wonderful! I’m going to try to make one very soon. I have just started making pouches for gifts for my friends, and I believe this is the cutest one I’ve seen. Can’t wait to get started! Thank you so much for sharing your pattern and the great pictures that will really help as I try to piece the pouch together! Great job!

  13. Thank you so much for sharing this pattern and instruction! This is just what I’ve been looking for. 🙂
    I will also use this as a base for a sewing-kit bag for a cousin of mine, so that he never ever need to use staplers on his trousers, if they break while on a business trip. Yea, he did that… 😀

    • Glad that you love it, Anna. The use of stapler is funny but it is the best way hold the pieces on when you don’t have threads and needles, hahaha 🙂

  14. These pouches look really great. I was excited to make them. I found it to be a difficult project. As in a previous comment, the “lining” turned out to be the exterior fabric. The zipper was very difficult to sew in. The second pouch side was much harder and with very poor results. The end of the zipper needs to have enough tail end to sew in the second pouch. The zipper has to be sewn in exactly as the first otherwise when you zip the wallet up, the edges of the finished side of the pouches don’t line up. I could not get this project to look as finished and be satisfied with the end result. I am impressed with how beautiful the ones on this blog look. It isn’t any easy feat to make them look so good.

  15. Realized after I cut my fabric that the “Lining” fabric is actually what appears on the OUTSIDE of the wallet. I found that very unusual since a lining usually goes on the inside.

    Haven’t tried sewing this up yet… let’s hope it turns out half as nice as the pics here.
