Two different options to choose for this pattern - the Allyn Zipper Pouch, or upgrade with the Allyn Crossbody Bag Add-On.

The Allyn Zipper Pouch (6 designs)

Do you ever just want to sew without thinking and having to make adjustments to a pattern, then this pattern is perfect for you!
I wanted a nice simple pouch pattern that I could do whatever I wanted to the exterior and it would sew up easy. So I created the Allyn Pouch!

Whether you like to sew scraps together, machine quilt, stitch machine embroidery designs or have a pretty print that you have been saving but don’t know which pattern to use it on or and don’t want to calculate a ton of things…this pattern is for you! Just take the Master Pattern piece and lay it on your fabric and cut it out! As long as it fits in those dimensions it will sew up into a lovely pouch!
Sometimes you don’t want to use just one fabric on your pouch…well I have also create 5 other layouts for your sewing pleasure.

BEST of all, the Lining pieces are the same for all 6 versions of the pouch and it will fit nicely without you having to make 100 adjustments…no frustration sewing!

In the interior of your pouch, I have also included the basic zipper pocket and a full width slip pocket with an accent edge but please make any pockets that suit your needs. Or better still, omit the interior pockets for super fast sewing which is great for last minute gifts or Craft Fairs.
