Star Zipper Pouches


Hi dear friends! Colourful scraps make most fun stars! Bright Kona solids framed with white cotton and dark Essex linen = Stars pop out!

On the other side there is improvised log gabin.

This is a big pouch and perfect to be a project bag, travelling pouch etc.

When you make something fun it’s hard to stay in one. Here the centre is more simple. If you like to see how I made the star for the first pouch, click HERE.

Wow, what a star!

I quilted some lines by machine and then stitched colours on the patchwork centres.

Zipper has leather cord and beads. For the end of the zipper I used hexagons.

This second star pouch is medium size. Again good for knitting and sewing projects or makeups.

Lining has stripes and the pouch has binding.

Medium size pouch is in my etsy shop. Big pouch flew already to new home.

Lately I have made many bags and pouches and I’m busy to finish some custom orders, because our special guest, ‘Paris’ will be soon here! Then it’s all day playing!

  3. Teje, these are so wonderful! But you’ve got to stop tempting me with your designs– I want to make them all and I’m going to need a Pinterest board just for you. Just look at Nelli–she’s yawning and exhausted from all the beautiful sewing going on around her 🙂


  4. Love the hexagons at the end of the zips – really nice touch!


  5. Great looking bags! I love those little pieced blocks.


  6. These are awesome Teje! I saw you piecing the star blocks on Instagram and they look even better framed in the Essex Linen. And your quilting is on point! xx Vicky
