I am not a huge fan of bulky purses. In fact, I only carry a bag because I have kids; apparently those little people need lots of things. So I grin and bear my ginormous diaper bag full of snacks, water bottles, wipes and Transformers (which are completely crucial for a grocery store run). When it’s just me, however, I like to travel light: the essentials only. This chevron zipper pouch is perfect for carrying the things that you really need for a day (or night) out.

Tie off and weave in ends.
Your piece should look like this:
Fold it in half (if you have ends poking out, turn you piece so they are facing out so they will be in the insides of the pouch later).
From here, you will sew it together into a tube using the overcast stitch, going through the two top loops, leaving the loops on the bottom unworked. This will hide the seam and stitches when you turn it right-side-out.
With the right-side out, sc across the top (I switched colors to keep everything neat. You can view Moogly’s video here for a great method), and sew the bottom up using the overcast stitch again. Be sure to work neatly since these stitches will be visible.
From here, you can sew on your zipper, which can be attached easily by hand: no machine required.
The first side can be sewn with the zipper zipped up. Using a simple running stitch, sew across the top, right under the loops of the top stitches. You can’t see my stitches, but it’s sewn!
Unzip the zipper and sew the other size in place the same way. I found pinning it before unzipping the zipper makes it much easier to sew. I also sewed through the zipper and both layers of the pouch on the sides of the pouch.
For a finishing touch, add a cute little tassel!
To make the tassel, take a few lengths of yarn and pull them though a jump ring (for jewelry making).
Using a third piece of string, tie it around the middle and secure with a knot in the back. You can also glue it.
Using needle nose pilers, open the jump ring and place it in the hole on the end so the zipper.
Super cute and so easy!

I loved your unique tutorial for my 2 grand daughters. The 4 year old is an exact copy of her 9 year old sister. They both love pink and purple but together on the same item I start Christmas craft work now and I already have a few things to make and thanks to your relaxing tutorial, I have 2 more that I can pur on my idea list and cross them Off when done.Each one only has 3 letters in their first name,,,,,, Ava is 4 and Mia is 8. I think I will embrouder their names right onto theit bags. Good idea? I am a new crocheter during the pandemic but have even made twin size afgans and 3 baby blankets and a baby sweater. It was my passion to learn to crochet. Thanks so much,
I love it! but I wanted to make different sizes, bigger length and width. on length would it work if I doubled the number of stitches?
Thank you! You can change the size by going up in multiples of 2 on the foundation (this adds one stitches to each side of the Chevron peak, keeping it equal). And you can repeat as many times as you need to make it as long as you want. Does that make sense?
Its so much easier than the other coin purse I tried,,, do you have an easy way to line it?
Thank you for this pattern! Love it!,,, got some compliments on it,,, its not perfect, but it will work, I will plan on making more of them!
Yay! Glad you like it!
