Hi bag makers! Welcome to a very exciting pattern release for our latest design, the V Pouch!! While most of this year has been focused on bringing you more comprehensive video classes, we have also been working on a few new designs behind the scenes as well (we can’t help ourselves!), and are beyond excited to finally have one perfected and ready for you to enjoy! So, without further ado, please say hi to the V Pouch!
The design for the V Pouch arose after I decided I wanted to create a cute little pouch that had a wide base, a petite top and opening, and some sort of ‘dart’ feature on the ends of the gusset. After MUCH trial and error, experimenting with many different ways to get the look I was after, while ensuring it remained user friendly and easy to re-create for others, I finally arrived at the V Pouch. And yes, as you may have guessed, she gets her name from her gorgeous, inverted little darts at each end of the gusset.
The V Pouch sits upright and has a wide opening, making it a practical design for almost any application. Featuring a zipper closure, generous gusset base, inner zipper pocket and a simple wrist strap, the V Pouch is a wonderfully quick and easy sew – perfect for last minute gifts or simply for yourself!

The V Pouch pattern also comes with detailed instructions on how to modify the pattern pieces to make a custom sized pouch. With step by step instructions on how to change the width and/or the height of the pouch, this pattern will quickly become a staple in your bag pattern collection!
