Rainbow Zipper Pouch Tutorial

Materials needed for the ultimate zipper pouch:
  • Several zippers (I used 13 7 inch zippers)
  • Sewing machine
  • zipper foot (not mandatory, but it helps)
  • Sharp needle
  • Hand sewing needle and thread
  • iron
  • extra fabric or bias tape if you would like to add a hand strap
  • fray check (optional)


Unzip your zippers and begin sewing the zippers together. (right sides together) Carefully line up the metal zipper edge pieces when sewing together.

As you get close to the other end of the zipper, slide the zipper closed to move the zipper pull out of the way.

Keep sewing the zippers together.  Once the zippers are all sewn together, fold the zippers in half (right sides together, to make a pouch.

To sew the along the sides of the pouch, you will need to open the zipper.  At this point, I had trouble keeping the zippers in a perfect line.  The only way I could keep them lined up was to sew a tiny basting stitch to keep them in place, shown below.  

If you would like to add a hand strap, cut a piece of bias tape to the desired length and sew along the edge.
Fold the bias tape in half and slide it inside the pouch, lining up the edges as shown below. Pin in place.

Sew along the sizes of the pouch, getting as close to the metal zipper stops as possible.

Then flip the pouch right side out and gently press with edges with a warm iron.
