Fruit Slice Purses and Pouches FREE sewing pattern

Here’s a really fun and FREE sewing pattern to make these Fruit Slice Purses and Pouches.

The designer, Stitched By Crystal, designed these cute little coin pouches and purses for her kids, and then gave us all this pattern and tutorial for free!

She thought that it might be fun to sew up a lemon clutch. And it was. Then she thought a lime one would be fun too, and then maybe a watermelon purse…soon she had six fun little fruit-inspired purses.

These little pouches are a quick sew and don’t use much fabric at all. She raided her scrap bins and was able to find everything she needed to make these. She says that if you have never sewn a zippered pouch before, it is really easy.

These pouches measure about 7.5″ wide and are 5″ tall. They are fully lined and close with a zipper.

The designer says that you can make these with a strap for a purse or leave the strap off and you can use it to hold anything small. She made her purses with a 30″ strap, which was perfect for her two-year-old, but you can easily make the strap longer if sewing for bigger girls or yourself.

The fruit details are all appliqued on, but you don’t need any special equipment, everything is done on a home sewing machine.

What you will need to make a Fruit Slice Purse/Pouch:-

  • Some fabric scraps in fruity colors and some fabric for the lining. If you are buying fabric, 1/4 yard will be more than enough.
  • A zipper that is at least 8″ long.
  • Some scraps of fusible fleece (again 1/4 yard will work).
  • Heat n Bond Ultra, to make the appliqueing really easy.
  • Optional 30″-45″ of double fold bias tape for the purse strap (store bought or make your own, the designer will show you how).
  • Basic sewing supplies.
  • A sewing machine.
