Ever since I began sewing lessons for my kid’s classes, I have been teaching how to make a 3 ring binder zipper pouch. This is such a fun and easy pattern that is perfect for back to school or a quick and simple gift. I love the clear vinyl window and the grommets. These add a nice finish to the 3 ring binder zipper pouch. Let me show you all about this project and don’t forget to watch the video tutorial too!
