I don't have an iPhone or an iPod, but I just had to try out this new FREE pattern for a pouch! It is easy and I can not remember where I got it from. I hope whomever designed it will forgive me, I do NOT take any credit for this design.
This is a super simple pouch. You will need 5 - 5x7 pieces of fabric. Two for the outside, 2 for the lining and one for the pocket. You will also need a 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 square for the ring. That's it! You will need 2 - 5x7 pieces of fusible interfacing for the lining, 1 - 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 piece of fusible for the pocket and batting for the front pieces. If you'd rather use fusible batting, knock yourself out! If you don't want to quilt your pouch, by all means....don't!
First, fuse the interfacing to each piece of the 5x7 pieces. Lay the 2 front pieces RST and the 2 lining pieces RST. Round the upper right hand corner. I used a 6" saucer. 3% curve is what you're looking for.
Fold your pocket with 5"side together and sew around 3 sides leaving an opening for turning. Turn, press and attach to the right side of one of the lining pieces. Line up your 9" zipper, wrong side to the right side of the lining with the pull 3/4" up from the lower right hand corner. Pin and baste with a scant 1/4" seam. Lay the front piece over the zipper with the right side down, pin and sew. Turn with wrong sides together and top stitch close to the seam.
Repeat for the second side. Open up and pin all of the raw edges together. Front pieces RST, lining pieces RST. Using a 1/2" seam allowance, start at one end of the zipper and sew all the way around the bag, leaving a 3" opening for turning in the lining. Trim the seam allowances. Turn through opening. Carefully push out all 4 corners. Now, sew either by hand or machine to close the opening. Ta-da!! You now have a great pouch for your iPhone/iPod or sunglasses or whatever! The pocket is great for earbuds or ID.
This simple pouch could be made a lot bigger or smaller, depending on your specific need. I hope that these instructions were helpful. I know that I will be making more of these.
