A quick and easy free pattern for a beautiful boxy cosmetic pouch. Unlined and with no interfacings making it a really easy quick sew. Great for gifts

What you will need:

Outer fabric, small piece 35 x 30 cm (13 x 11″) : Use a nice heavyweight firm fabric that doesn’t fray such as cordura, vinyl, cork, oilskin, or oilcloth

12” nylon zip or longer

Just print out the pattern pieces and tape together as instructed. Prints onto A4 or US letter size paper. Cut out your fabric and follow the YouTube sewalong.

YOU WILL NEED ADOBE ACROBAT TO OPEN THE FILE. You probably already have it, but if not, you can download for free at

NB – The pattern is based on using a regular 1″ wide zip (including zip tape). If you are using a wider zip, take a slightly wider seam allowance at the zip edge to compensate, so your corner notches will still match up.

This Cosmetic Pod sits beautifully with my Packing Pods Sewing Pattern which you can find here –
