Summer Sewing Session - Deanie Pouch

Create a fun faux-leather pouch with fun embroidery done in sparkly Sulky thread. Learn tons of techniques from the Sallie Tomato designer while you work your way through the pattern, which is included with purchase of the Session!

This Sewing Session is split into easily digestible Lessons so you can choose how much (or how little) you want to sew each day until your project is complete!

With purchase of the Session, you'll receive the NEW Deanie Pouch pattern designed by Sallie Tomato for Sulky for FREE, valued at $12.99!

Alternatively, purchase JUST the digital pattern (without the Sewing Session) here.


Each Lesson is available for you to interact with at your leisure. Start with Lesson 1 and then move through the Session as you're comfortable and able, at your own pace.

Each Lesson contains information, techniques and Lessons 2-6 include at least one video for a short sewing session, to break up the project and allow you to finish it in manageable chunks. You may rewatch, pause, fast forward the videos for each Lesson as many times as desired. 

At the end of each Lesson, you will arrive at a natural stopping point, so you can choose to come back to the project and finish the remaining Lessons as you have time. 

Once you purchase the Session, you also have the opportunity to join our Deanie Pouch Community. This is a safe space to interact with fellow sewists working through the Deanie Pouch, post your project progress and ask questions as you learn.


This handy Deanie Pouch can be made in two sizes: wallet or carrier. Use either size as a phone case, small project or tool case; even a travel pouch. Mesh interior pockets keep items organized and the zipper closure secures everything inside. Personalize your pouch with a monogram, clever saying, embroidery, or keep it clean and sleek. The name of this pattern was inspired by Deanie Loomis and the film, Splendor in the Grass.
The finished wallet is 4” wide, 7-1/2" high, and 3/4” deep.
The finished carrier is 5” wide, 9-1/2" high and 1” deep.
The kit includes enough materials to make EITHER size. So if you want a matching set, you will need additional materials (or 2 kits).

  • Sulky Poly Deco Thread in Gray (for construction)
  • Sulky Poly Sparkle Thread in Charcoal Gray with Silver Sparkle (for machine embroidery)

Here's what you'll learn during the Summer Sewing Session: Deanie Pouch.

Lesson 1: Embroidery

Learn how to add machine embroidery to the Deanie Pouch. We'll go over the stabilizer, needle and thread "recipe" for success, as well as how to finish the embroidered piece. If not adding machine embroidery, you may read the sections, watch and learn the techniques or skip ahead to Lesson 2.

Lesson 2: Pattern Prep

Prepare the pattern pieces and learn about working with faux leather. At the end of this Lesson, you'll be ready to assemble the Interior Mesh Pocket.

Lesson 3: Interior Mesh Pocket

The mesh pocket secures the pouch contents and adds a designer touch to the Deanie Pouch. After this Lesson, we'll insert the zipper.

Lesson 4: Zipper Tips

Learn about working with faux metal zippers and how to adjust your machine settings to sew professional zippers. Then, attach the zipper to the Deanie Pouch with confidence.

Lesson 5: Pouch Finishing

Turn the pouch right side out and add professional finishes to elevate your pouch to designer status. Add the optional tassel for a fun addition. At the end of this Lesson, your Deanie Pouch will be complete!
