Meet the SILA Duo Pouch Pattern. It is a set of classics – a large, flat-bottom pouch with a full-width front pocket that can hold a second, flat pouch that functions as an additional, entirely removable pocket.
The 2 pouches are sized to fit inside one another for easy organization: the large, double-pocket zipper bag will house the small, flat zipper pouch. So convenient!

The wider, larger pouch can be used as a cosmetic bag, wristlet, first aid kit, or for craft or office supplies storage or you can turn it into a crossbody bag. The small pouch is perfect for smaller items such as makeup brushes, bills, pencils, etc., depending on its use.
This Zipper Bag Pattern is a 2-in-1
This is a set of two classics - a large, flat-bottom pouch with a full-width front pocket that will house a second, flat pouch, functioning as an additional, entirely removable pocket.
- A main compartment with top zipper closure that keeps everything secure.
- An easy-access, full-width front pocket with a flap closure.
- An interior slip pocket for small items like lip gloss, shades, or earbuds.
- The front panel looks beautiful in patchwork or quilt-as-you-go panels – ideal for using fabric scraps.
- Complementary small zipper pouch in 2 designs.
With everything neatly organized and easy to reach, the SILA Duo Pouch makes a great travel set. Make as many pouches as you wish - you can either use them separately or stack them into the main compartment.
Easy to sew and a good evergreen seller for your handmade shop - This is a classic you'll be able to use everywhere. I also made sure the construction process is targeting professional-looking results while minimizing bulk, so the pattern is suitable for a domestic sewing machine.
