Zippered Pouches with Judith Dahmen


Availability: In stock

In this class we’ll take the fear out of sewing zips by making handy flat bottom pouches! In under three hours you’ll be sewing zips like a pro and addicted to making these cute bags.

About your teacher: Judith Dahmen was born into a family where handicraft was important and learned how to knit and sew clothes from her mother when she was a young teenager. Over the past years she has turned all of her free energy and time to quilting and can’t understand why she hasn’t done it all her life! She loves the design opportunities quilting gives her and that she is constantly able to learn new techniques to improve her work. Not to mention quilts are wonderful to snuggle under on the sofa, look fantastic on a bed and are the best presents. Judith blogs at

Skills needed: This class is aimed at beginners who understand sewing machine basics, including how to thread a machine and sew straight stitches.

Materials: You'll need to bring or buy your fabric, zipper, interfacing and thread for this class. Depending on your experience and pace, you may be able to complete more than one pouch. The supplies list follows, but feel free to contact us with any questions!

* Fabric: For large pouches, you'll need two half meters of fabric (inner and outer) and for all other sizes you'll need two fat quarters. If you'd like to do a contrasting bottom, you will need additional fabric. Pouches can be made in any side but the large pouches pictured are 12" wide x 8" tall x 4.5" deep.
* Interfacing: You will need approximately half a metre of woven fusible interfacing for each pouch.
* Zippers: One 14” zip for the large size and 10 to 12” zip for other sizes.
* Thread: Coordinating thread

All other notions and tools will be provided. Students receive 10% off when they purchase materials in the shop.
