3 in 1 Pouch Pattern by Aneela Hoey


Happy Friday! I hope your September is going well so far. I feel like "Summer" was so short, and yet the super hot and humid weather has continued :( I am ready for fall temps and falling leaves!

Today I want to share this beautiful 3 in 1 Pouch pattern by Aneela Hoey. I have been testing patterns for Aneela for well over a year now and I am always pleasantly surprised at how simply her bags come together, even for those who may not be skilled in pouches.

The specs:


  • Separating zipper + 3 interior pockets
  • Very roomy, each divided pocket fits multiple large thread spools
  • No templates or printed pieces needed.
  • Closed size - 10"(W) x 4"(H) x 4"(D)
  • Open size - 10"(W) x 4"(H) x 7"(D)

Pattern Review

The great thing about this particular pouch is the simplified construction method. If you're familiar with the pouch similar to this in Aneela's book "Stitched Sewing Organizers", you may have found the origami style construction a bit difficult. This 3 in 1 Pouch is much more straight forward!

It's definitely an Intermediate level pattern still, so keep that in mind. However, with Aneela's great instructions and detailed drawings depicting the steps to complete the pouch, I don't think you'll have an issue. Just take your time and read everything twice. This pattern also features quite a bit of hand stitching, so if thats not something you're comfortable with I'd do a little practice first :)

Overall this is a great unique pattern and would be especially good for crafters, teachers, kids, makeup enthusiasts, etc. It can hold lots of goodies!


My version features this beautiful Navy Gingham from Cotton + Steel and a Pat Bravo "Indie Folk" print for Art Gallery Fabrics. I did a small EPP panel with 1" hexes on the front and outlined those with some decorative hand stitching in Aurifil 12 wt. threads.

Im really happy with how it turned out and will definitely be making more in the future!



Would you purchase this pattern? What do you think of it?
