Here is a post on How to Sew a Pop Up pouch. You will find this pouch very familiar cause usually will see it outside, like to store spectacle, or sunglasses pouch? Yup! I guess so! So I decide to make this pouch. It’s seems to be easy and it’s really easy 😉 And it might suitable for beginners who want to make this ^^.
- fabrics & lining
- metal pop up
- pins and clips
Let’s check out the steps!
Cut 4 fabric pieces, For the size it can be any size which is convenient to you. You can also measure according to your Pop up metal length.
2 for lining size 5 x 7″
2 outer fabric size 5 x 7″
Measure the top of your fabric and lining piece 1/2 inches in both sides. Mark a line for clearer reference.
After measurement, for the lining piece sew down both side together and leave a gap at the bottom for turning. Do a back-stitch for starting and ending. Outer Piece just sew down both side and bottom. It will look as picture shown below.
Align both piece from the opening part to each other. Means the top part opening and pin to each other.
Sew down the area that you pin it. Until you reach the marking line from step 1. Always remember to do a back-stitch for starting and ending part.
Once you sew, turn it over. Cut out the excess if needed before turn it over. Make sure all the corners are push out nicely and just press using an iron.
Then fold down the top part until the edge. (as picture shown) Pin or clip it in place.
Sew down the side where the opening side are. (refer to the picture below)
I’m using a metal pop up for the pouch to open and close. It will look something like the picture below.
Once you done, slot in the metal piece to the hole where you sewed.
There! And you are DONE! At first I thought it would hard to insert the metal piece, but to be honest, is not as hard as I thought! And I made it! You can too! Try it and have some fun making it.
I will do up a tutorial sooner or later! Please do check out my updates! Hope you have fun doing this project! Do leave me some comments or like or share to help me for my post for people out there who are interested in making this pouch! It’s great for a gift to a friend or families.
