guide to sew a cosmetic pouch

I find little pouches are always useful. For cosmetics, chargers, pencils, sewing utensils, first aid products... They help me organizing all the essentials I want to keep within easy reach. What's more, sewing a pouch is a quick and satisfying DIY project which is ideal for beginner sewists. There are many ways to sew zipper pouches, but here is the way I like the most. This type is a wide, medium boxy pouch where you can see everything that is inside in a glimpse. The only part that can be tricky for beginners is placing the zipper.

The Marigold tutorial is the size and type of tote bag I prefer: big enough to carry my computer, small enough to take on travels.
