Announcing the Popcorn Pouch Sew-A-Long!

Apr 19, 2019

Hello and welcome! I'm popping in today to announce the Popcorn Pouch Sew-A-Long!

I'm Amista Baker, the Popcorn Pouch designer, and I'll be your host for the next couple weeks while we make some of these easy pouches! I'll help you along the way with posts here on my blog and you'll have a chance to win prizes at the end of the month!

Why are we having a SAL?

I get many questions on a weekly basis about zippers, how to finish off the Popcorn Pouch binding, or add a key ring loop to the Mini sizes. We'll talk about these things over the coming days as well as general tips for getting better results when sewing with zippers and more.

FIRST: You'll need the Popcorn Pouch Pattern to participate.


The SAL will last from May 1st through 24th, 2019 and will take place here on my blog.

We'll take the weekends off - no sewing on Saturdays and Sundays. Those can be catch-up days if you need them, and we'll use the weekdays to follow the SAL progress.

Week 1: From May 1-3. Getting started, choosing supplies.
Week 2: From May 6-10. Cutting and prepping.
Week 3: From May 13-17. Assembly, attaching binding and key ring loops, etc.
Week 4: From May 20-24. Show-off your finished pouches and enter to win prizes

*You have four days (May 20 through 24) to share your pouches. The cut off date for entering prizes is May 24 at Midnight EST. Enter by completing the Rafflecopter form at the bottom of this post on the dates mentioned. 

Where can I participate?

The full details for each week will be posted here on the Hilltop Custom Designs blog. Please sign up here to be notified via email when the swap commences and there are new blog posts.

Alternately, we'll be following along on Instagram @amistabaker. But you'll need to visit the blog to get all the details each week.

What do I need?

You'll need to click here & purchase the Popcorn Pouch Pattern to participate if you don't already have it.

OPTIONAL: Bauble Pod, $1 hack (you'll get extra entries for making one!)

All fabric requirements and other supplies needed are listed in the pattern details. For Week 1 you'll simply want to grab the pattern and look over / gather supplies needed.

Rules and Info:

  • You'll get credit for posting EACH WEEK and following the actual stitch-a-long progress. You're more than welcome to sew ahead, but please remember to hold off on posting finished pouches until the appropriate times so you're eligible to win the prizes! 
  • Previously made pouches will not qualify for the giveaway prizes. You must participate in the actual stitch-a-long and make new pouches.
  • Use #popcornpouchsal and #popcornpouch on your social media posts.
  • Open internationally. Anyone who participates and follows these rules is eligible to win.
  • Cut off date for entering to win prizes is May 24th, 2019 at midnight. To enter, please check back here on Week 4 of the SAL to enter yourself at the bottom of this post on the Rafflecopter form.

I hope you'll join us!

These pouches are incredibly fast to make, you won't have any problem whipping right through this pattern! But for those that need help, I'll be here for you! Each week I'll provide helpful tips and tricks right here on my blog!
