More planner love today! For the last #makeyourplannercuterswap, I made a binder pencil pouch for my partner to clip in her planner. As you know, I really love my planners, so I’m especially excited to make sewn accessories for them, that way I can use fabric in my planning as well. If you’ve never made a zipper pouch before, this is a great one to start with, no fancy interfacing, just fabric! Be sure to check out my zipper only tutorial too, for a more detailed look at sewing the top zipper.
I’ve listed the measurements for a personal size with a5 in parenthesis. If you have any other size, just measure your dashboard and add 1/2″ to height and width. You’ll need:
- (2) 4 1/2″ x 7 1/2″ (4 1/2″ x 9″) rectangles for outside
- (2) 4″ x 7 1/2″ (4″ x 9″) rectangles for lining
- (2) 1 1/4″ x 2″ rectangles for zipper tabs
- 7″ (10″) zipper
- 6 eyelets and tools
Read all directions before beginning. All seam allowances 1/4″. RST = right sides together; WST = wrong sides together.
Then snap your binder and you’re all set to take some supplies with you. If you make one I’d love to see it. Share it with me via e-mail or, if you share on Instagram, tag me @cloverandviolet and #binderpencilpouch #cloverandviolet.
