Fabric Scrap Pouch

By: Amber Carillo from One Shabby Chick

Use up those fabric scraps with this free sewing tutorial from Amber Carillo. This cute Fabric Scrap Pouch uses scraps of fabric in this easy to follow sewing pattern. Add a snap for a quick coin purse project or make a larger pouch for your iPhone or even small camera.


  • Scraps of fabric at least 1" x 6" (I used varying widths - between 1" and 3" is good)
  • 5" x 12" piece of batting
  • 5" x 12" fabric for lining
  • Snap set 



  1. Take all your scrap pieces and sew them together until you have a piece that is approx. 6" x 13" (you want it a little longer/wider so you can trim it evenly).

  2. Trim down to 5" x 12". I used my walking foot after this point for the rest of the process...just helps feed everything better.
  3. Lay your trimmed top onto your piece of batting and quilt with 1/2" lines lengthwise across the entire piece. (I didn't pin it since it doesn't really shift but you can if you want to)

  4. Trim again to 5" x 12" if you need to. Place your quilted piece and lining piece right sides together and pin along edges. You want to leave a 2" opening for turning.

  5. Sew along all edges (except for your opening). Sew a few re-enforcement stitches at the start and stop of your opening so that it doesn not tear your stitching when you turn your pouch right-side out.

  6. Trim corner edges and turn pouch right sides out, carefully pushing corners out using a turning tool or chopstick.

  7. Iron on both sides. Tuck in edge pieces of opening, iron and pin.

  8. Topstitch along entire top piece using a very small seam allowance, making sure to sew opening shut securely.

  9. Fold up bottom about 4" (or however big you want your pouch to be). Pin on each side, taking care to match up the topstitching on the front and back.

  10. Sew along topstitching line on each side, re-enforcing the top edge well. I went over it a couple times just to make sure it is sewn securely.

  11. Add your snap to the top flap and outside front area of your pouch and you are done!

Note: You can easily make more than one at a time if you use longer strips (say 11" or longer) and then just trim them down to 5" wide pieces.
