Published – Peabody Pouch

Hot off the Press! I am delighted to share my Scrappy Peabody Pouches! These cute little pouches feature a unique shaped top that opens wide to fill with whatever goodies you like. I used color coordinated scraps from the stash to create these little cuties.

Featured in the July 2021 issue of American Quilter Magazine, this issue is loaded with lots of fun projects…including my Peabody Pouches.

I pieced the scrappy half square triangles and then used scrap linen from the stash for the body of the pouch.

I stitched the zipper right on curved top of the pouch to create the unique shape.

I quilted right through the lining and just used binding to hide the raw edges on the inside.

That curved top helps the bag open wider to really fill it up whether you use for cosmetics, quilting notions or essential chocolate.

You can stitch up a whole group of little Peabody pouches for gifts or just make something special for yourself. They make great assembly line sewing, so make up a pile of them.

Grab a copy of the latest issue or head over to to get a digital copy.

Happy Stitching!

  1. Cute bags!! Gives me a reason to go to the quilt store in Gaylord and look for this magazine.


  2. great project. On my second one I changed the width of the F and G binding strips to 1 1/2″. 2 1/4″ seems too wide and left extra material around the edge. Can you think of any reason to not do this? Thanks!

  3. Lori you are SO talented. Congrats on being in the magazine!!! I’ll have to go buy a copy of it. I love the little bags they’ll make great gifts.
