EASY to sew Vinyl Wall Pockets



An easy project for Newbie Vinyl Sewists.
The Wall Pocket organizer with Stardust vinyl and clear vinyl.


The short PDF instruction sheet is here.


Be sure to use a teflon or nonstick sewing foot - it's a deal breaker without one.



My Sewing with Vinyls tips and tricks post is here and worth a read if you're new to sewing vinyl.











I carry tons of colors of Stardust vinyl here.


Gold Stardust vinyl with grommets:


Ruby has this one above her bunk bed, no more dropping the book at night when it's lights out.




My Croc vinyls would be glorious for this project as well! Find them in my Shop here or my Etsy shop here.

The cover girl bag in pieced scraps, sashiko stitched, and zebra striped cork. This bag is easy enough to make it out of a variety of materials including cork, vinyl, leather, canvas, and more.





Various interfacings can be used as well. See how the same pattern looks a little different with these changes here:

Updates on Easy Zipper Case pattern




My Easy Zipper Cases is an easy sewing pattern with three sizes. 

These are lined, stand up on their own, and are totally doable if you're new to sewing zippers.

As always, you can sell your makes! I super appreciate you crediting my pattern if you post on social media, it really does help my business. Thank you.

I have videos to help you through making them here and here. These were early vids and I'll remake them soon, but at least if you get stuck you can see. Yay! Thank you for subscribing. :)



For the fatter contrast bottom (now updated in the PDF) - use ALMOST the same height as the focus fabric. In other words, for a size Medium you'll cut 10" x 4.25" for focus fabric and 10" x 4" for contrast bottom. The boxed corners take a big bite out, so that's why we cut this way.



Here is the link to the printed Easy Zipper Cases pattern.

Here is the link to the instant download PDF pattern.



If at all possible DO buy yourself a zipper foot. It makes sewing zippers so much easier! YES really.





If you're making a vinyl case, get a teflon foot. I talk a lot about sewing vinyl here.




I can't wait to see your Making Magic efforts! Tag me @sewhungryhippie so I can do cartwheels with you!








My latest bag pattern is in May-June McCall's Quilting magazine on news stands now! The digital version is available here.

I used Mother's Choice quilt block on the front and I love the super deep pockets on the back. I'd love to see your version!
