Double zippered, open wide pouch

An original bag, loosely adapted from Noodle-head’s medium-sized, open wide, zippered pouch.

This one is for my husband. He doesn’t get zippered pouches made for him nearly often enough. I am really lacking in the guy fabric department but I think this birch fabric worked out great. I’m thinking he’ll use it for electronics when we travel, but who knows?

So you can get a feel for how big this one is, I used a 14″ zipper across the top and a 9″ one for a shallow zippered pocket, I inserted along the front seam. I am envisioning using that pocket for the Fit bit charger, camera cards, adapters or maybe thumb drives, small things that are easily lost. I like that I boxed the corners really wide, on this one. 4 inches! It gives it a lot of depth for computer chargers, phone chargers, razor chargers…. Maybe you get the picture, maybe not. With him having his own nice sized, zippered pouch, maybe he will carry my chargers, too!

Finished at 13″ x 7.5 ” by 4″.

I trimmed out the back panel with a piece of the same marbled green I used as zipper tabs. In my brain they match the zipper exactly, the natural daylight causes it to absorb more light, I suppose, to where it doesn’t come off matching as well, on the monitor as it does in real life. Why is that? You’ve seen it happen, too, right??

    I get the picture and think it will be great for organizing/traveling with all those electronic bits and pieces.


  4. what a great adaptation! I was lucky enough to receive one of this wide zipper bags as part of a swap and I love it!


  5. Neat bag, your husband will be so organised on his travels!


  6. I love the zip in the bottom. I am sure Your DH will love it.


  7. What great ideas of a traveling pouch. I ended up using stacks of plastic bags the last time I traveled, and they worked, but this would be so much better. The second, small pocket was a great idea. That way everything can be together, but you can handle the small stuff so much easier in a small pocket.

    That is a really nice pouch! You did such a beautiful job with it. Guy fabrics are hard to come by, but I think that birch fabric fits the bill. Congrats on a great finish and thanks for linking up!

    Hi… I’m in love with the bag & the pocket…I’ve made the noodle head bag before but wanted to know how you made the smaller zipper pouch/pocket?


  16. Christine says:

    J’adore ! Elle est très jolie.
    Je me demande comment vous avez rajouté la petite poche devant. Pouvez-vous m’expliquer ?
    Bonne fin d’année.
