Let’s be honest – one of the best parts of having a planner is adding on all the goodies that make planning fun. The stickers, the pens, the clips and of course the pouches.

Lay the outer fabric on your work surface with the right-side facing up. Lay the zipper face-down on your work surface so that the top edge of the zipper aligns with the top edge of the outer fabric. Lay the liner fabric right-side down on top of the zipper so that top edges line up. Clip the pieces together and stitch across the top as shown above.
With the first layer of fabrics stitched into place, arrange the second pair of fabrics as shown and sew into place.
Lay out the project as shown and press the seams if needed. Finish off with a top-stitch as shown.
Fold the zipper pouch so that the liner fabric is on the outside. Fold the bias tape over the raw edges and clip into place. Sew into place.
Cut a piece of wide elastic that is about .5″-1″ longer than the pouch
Place the wide elastic into the bag as shown.
Cut two pieces of bias tape. Each piece should be about 1″ wider than the width of the zipper pouch.
Fold the bias tape over the raw edges and clip into place. Stitch into place. DONE!
