About the Event

Svetlana Sotak - Saturday 13 February 2021 - 4.00pm to 7.00pm (GMT)

Online Interactive Workshop: Malmo Pouch

We're really excited to be hosting this Malmo Pouch workshop where, once again, we'll be in the wonderful company of the superbly talented Svetlana Sotak!

Introduction by Svetlana:-

Learn how to make this beautiful foldover pouch in three sizes featuring a main zipper closure, a lovely leather handle, and an additional welted zipper pocket (plus the bonus instructions on how to turn it into a super handy crossbody bag)!

What You Will Learn in this Online Interactive Workshop:-

In this class we'll learn how to add structure and stability to the finished pouches using easily accessible sewing supplies and materials. We'll also learn how to neatly install zippers for a beautiful, professional finish and we'll talk about customization and how to use the skills we learn in our future projects.

Skill Level for this Online Interactive Workshop:-

This class is for sewists of all levels!

Material & Fabric requirements for this Online Interactive Workshop:-


  • FE (fat eighth) of fabric measures 9'' x 21''
  • FABRIC A (exterior) – 1 FE
  • FABRIC B (exterior flap + main zipper tab) – 1 FE
  • FABRIC C (main lining + zipper pocket lining) – 1/2 yard
  • SF101 INTERFACING (or other medium weight fusible interfacing of choice) – 3/4 yard
  • One (1) – 8'' long metal or nylon main ZIPPER
  • One (1) - 5'' long metal or nylon pocket ZIPPER
  • One (1) – 1/2'' wide x 5 ½'' long leather strip for handle
  • One (1) – 1/2'' – 1'' wide x 1 ¾'' long cotton ribbon
  • One (1) – 1/8'' wide x 4'' long leather lace or ribbon for closure loop
  • One (1) – larger button of choice 2 zipper pulls (optional)


Svetlana recommends using Essex linen, denim, designer canvas, or cotton/linen blend for the exterior panel of the pouch (FABRIC A). Quilting cotton can also be used, but your finished pouch will not be as sturdy. Quilting cotton will work great for the exterior flap panel as well as the lining (FABRICS B, C).

  • Rotary cutter, self healing cutting mat, acrylic ruler
  • Wonder clips and/or pins
  • Disappearing fabric marker or fine chalk pen
  • Sharp fabric scissors
  • Zipper foot for your sewing machine
  • Hand sewing supplies and strong thread to attach the button (Svetlana uses Perle Cotton)
