A couple of weeks ago I got on a scrap busting mission and decided to make some quilt-as-you go panels that I could turn into different projects later. And then this week, I sewed up some of the panels into quilt-as-you-go zipper pouches for some easy gifts when I need them. I really do love the QAYG method (quilt-as-you-go) method because it turns wonky scraps into some great things!
Here’s how you make the zipper pouches if you need to make a few for yourself and for gifts!
Quilt-as-you-go Zipper Pouch Tutorial
The rectangles I used for the zipper pouches were 9 inches by 11 inches which make an 8 by 10 inch bag when you are finished. I cut the batting to that size and then used THIS QAYG TUTORIAL to do the panels. (This tutorial is for a baby bib….but the panels will be quilted the same way as the tutorial 😉
And here is the QUILTED ZIPPER POUCH TUTORIAL to finish the zipper pouch up. After the panels are quilted they are super fast to sew up!
