Poppy Collection

Field Poppy Pouch

  • Img_4428.jpg_effected Pin-it%402x


We fell in love with this saturated floral print the moment we spotted it. Left over from Milly’s Peggy Guggenheim-inspired runway show we snatched it up and paired it with a contrasting zipper.

It’s the perfect stash-all for summer adventures. In the past week we’ve used it to store lipstick for a pre-wedding touchup, stash treats for jury duty snacks and managed to fit three necklaces, two earrings, a subway card, and enough quarters for an iced coffee in it.


  • scissors
  • iron
  • sewing needle


  • floral cotton- straight from a Milly runway show
  • magenta zipper
  • fusible bonding web
  • cotton twill tape
  • cream thread
Fp1s Pin-it%402x

Gather all your materials and turn your iron on medium.

Fp2s Pin-it%402x

Measure the fusible bonding web and trim if it’s a bit longer than the width of the floral fabric.

Fp3s Pin-it%402x

Once you’ve measured cut the fusible web down the center so that you have two long strips.

Fp4s Pin-it%402x

Then cut each strip in half again so that you have four super skinny strips.

Fp5s Pin-it%402x

Place the first strip an inch below the edge of the fabric.

Fp6s Pin-it%402x

Fold the fabric at the edge and iron in order to hold a stiff fold. Make sure that the iron doesn’t touch the fusible web directly but go over the edge enough that the web will bond the two layers of fabric together.

Fp7s Pin-it%402x

Repeat on the opposite side.

Fp8s Pin-it%402x

Place the third strip of fusible web on top of the first fold, very close to the edge.

Fp9s Pin-it%402x

Lay the zipper face down on top of the fusible web.

Fp10s Pin-it%402x

Flip over the fabric and the zipper and iron them in order to fuse the layers. Make sure you leave enough fabric on each side of the zipper, to stitch the seam (thats coming up).

Fp11s Pin-it%402x

Repeat with the last strip of fusible web on the opposite end.

Fp12s Pin-it%402x

Flip and iron the opposite side of fabric. Making sure the zipper and fabric are fused together.

Fp13s Pin-it%402x

So you’ve ironed each side. But you’re going to actually put something in this pouch so stitch along where you just ironed. Thread the needle and double knot the end of your thread.

Fp14s Pin-it%402x

Stitch just below the ironed edge.

Fp15s Pin-it%402x

A small running stitch does the trick.

Fp17s Pin-it%402x

At the end of the fabric tie a double knot.

Fp18s Pin-it%402x

Snip your threads.

Fp19s Pin-it%402x

Repeat stitching over the fusible web on the other side of the zipper.

Fp20s Pin-it%402x

Turn inside out and zip up the zipper.

Fp21s Pin-it%402x

Lay the fabric flat making sure it is exactly n half.

Fp22s Pin-it%402x

Starting at the edge of your zipper stitch the sides closed.

Fp23s Pin-it%402x

Make sure to secure the edge with a few overhand stitches before you stitch the rest of the side of fabric.

Fp24s Pin-it%402x

Again, a small running stitch will make sure your belongings stay secure in the pouch so relax, turn on some tunes and just sew.

Fp25s Pin-it%402x

When you reach the end go over the last stitch several times before you double knot your thread.

Fp26s Pin-it%402x

Unzip the zipper.

Fp27s Pin-it%402x

Fold the cotton twill tape in half and place it between your layers of floral fabric about an inch down from the zipper.

Fp28s Pin-it%402x

Fold the fabric back, keeping the twill tape in place with your hand. You may want to add one stitch to hold it in place while you sew.

Fp30s Pin-it%402x

Stitch the the last side of your pouch. You may be reaching the end of your playlist here. Crank it up.

Fp31s Pin-it%402x

Knot at the end and trim your thread.

Fp32s Pin-it%402x

Turn your pouch right side out. Pushing the corners out with your fingers.

Fp33s Pin-it%402x

Zip it all up and you are ready for summer adventures.

Ladies - I really enjoyed making this! It was so therapeutic just sitting there sewing and the vibrant print made me so happy. I really appreciate the little things you guys added like the contrasting fuschia pink zipper and the nice quality fabric tab on the side. Such attention to detail! Thanks and can't wait to do more projects!
