Deanie Pouch – ALL NEW Summer Sewing Session

Deanie Pouch Session

Deanie Pouch – a Sulky Summer Sewing Session

brand new virtual education opportunity!

Join us as we present a new education experience at! Together with Sallie Tomato, we’re bringing you the Deanie Pouch. This comprehensive sewing session includes multiple Lessons and sections within each Lesson, allowing you to learn at your own pace and complete the Deanie Pouch in either the wallet or project pouch size. Schedule your sewing, take breaks, and return right where you left off on our state-of-the-art education platform.


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

Lesson 1: Embroidery

Learn how to add machine embroidery. 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: Deanie Pouch 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. 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!


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!

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 re-watch, pause and 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.

Deanie Pouch


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.
