I have had this little mini homemade travel pouch in my car’s glove box for years. I use it as a car first aid kit. I made it a really long time ago and was thinking about how fun and easy it is to put together. I wanted to show it to you guys today because I think this homemade travel pouch is so versatile and useful! Plus, the easiest part is that it is made with just ONE stitch!! If you don’t have a sewing machine, you can do it by hand as well. This little pouch could be used as a makeup bag, a first-aid kit, a snack pouch for your kids, or a purse organizer. Really, you could use it for any purpose!
How To Make the One-Stitch Homemade Travel Pouch:
Line up the ziplock bags with half on each side. The ends need to be overlapping just a little bit as seen in the image.
Pin them in place because sewing them can be a bit tricky a they are slippery.
Sew a zig-zag stitch straight down the middle. Back-stitch at the beginning and end to secure the thread.
Now you can hand-sew on a button- or of you would rather hot-hue it, that will hold as well! That will really make it just a one-stitch project.
Now, decide what it’s purpose is. My old one is full of useful first-aid items that I tend to regularly need while out and about: tylenol, bandaids, etc… I think this one will be my new purse organizer! But, do with it what YOU will! 🙂
