Roxbury Pouch



The Roxbury Pouch comes in three sizes and can be made in two ways:

(Version 1 – With Elastic) This easy zippered pouch secures to any sized journal, planner, or notebook with an elastic band.

(Version 2 – Without Elastic) The Roxbury Pouch corrals loose items of all kinds. Make all three sizes for a darling trio of pouches.

A great scrap buster, this pattern requires minimal materials and time to create, making the Roxbury Pouch a simple and enjoyable project for new and experienced sewists alike.

Small 2 1/2” H x 7” W

Medium 3” H x 8” W

Large 4” H x 8 3/4” W

Photos and illustrations accompany detailed, tutorial-style instructions for creating both versions of the Roxbury Pouch.  Both printable pattern templates and cutting chart dimensions are included.  A team of 16 testers vetted this pattern, testing varied methods and interfacings, editing, revising, and clarifying — ensuring your successful outcome.
