Sweeten your world with the Piquant Pouch sewing pattern – a delightful little addition to your crafting repertoire! Please note, you are buying a downloadable PDF and SVG files only, you are not buying a completed bag.

Perfect for intermediate sewers, this small zippered coin purse pattern offers a birthed, not bound, domestic-machine-friendly design. It features a low investment in materials, minimal hardware, and just a touch of hand-sewing to finish it off, making it a swift project that can be completed in under an hour.

The pouch comes complete with two classic shapes – the sweet strawberry and crisp apple. Whether you're designing plain pouches or using the applique designs, this pattern is a scrap-buster's dream, utilising small leather or vinyl remnants to craft a cute and functional accessory. As a bonus, a leaf template is included to fashion your very own leaf-shaped zipper pull, adding a personalized touch to your fruity creations.

What's more, the Piquant Pouch pattern is fully customizable and can be enhanced with additional add-on packs, so you never have to sew the same design twice.

Please note that add-on packs are sold separately.

Love The Piquant Pouch pattern

These little bags are so adorable and perfect little gifts for teachers, friends and kids! The pattern is so user friendly I easily added a gusset for a little more room. Great size for a quick sew that sparks your creative side!

The Piquant Pouch

This pattern if fun to sew and if you have scraps of materials - fabric or vinyl.

Very cute.

I was not happy with the two I made, apple and kiwi. Think it is more my fault and not the designers. Will try again in a few days. And the only tutorial I found was in French.

A pleasure to sew!

This was my very first soft leather bag I've ever made (though I'm an avid sewest). The small scale is certainly a challenge, but the designs are SO CUTE it's worth it and illustrated instructions make it a pleasure to sew. The directions are thoughtfully written, the illustrations clean and clear, and there are so many helpful tips for those of us new to working with leather or vinyl throughout the pattern. While the scale of the project does pose a challenge, the finished product is such a perfect size- just big enough for a few credit cards, some chapstick and change. The small size also means it's super quick to sew, which makes it a great instant gratification project and a quick-to-sew gift!

Another amazing pattern!

This pattern is so easy to follow, with detailed instructions and diagrams.As with the hugo, the pisces fit together beautifully. It's a fast and fun Pattern with so many fantastic options for designs!......and no binding on this one!!!! Only down side is its addictive and you will want to make 100!
