This is a tutorial for making a simple zipper pouch with lining. Unlike some zippered pouches, this style offers a clean method for finishing off the ends of the zipper so they don't dive into the pouch.
Step 1: Gather Materials
You'll need the following supplies:
- Exterior Fabric (you can buy the purple veggie fabric I designed and is used in this tutorial here: http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/4673861-veggiepa...
- Interior Fabric (use a thin piece of scrap fabric for this. It's easiest of the lining is the same on both sides)
- A 7" zipper (you can buy one at the local craft store for about $3 or buy 54 for $13 here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007OWG290?psc=1&...
-Measuring tape or ruler
-Thread and a bobbin
-Pencil or pen
-A key for the sewing machine in case you need to switch needles (you can use a coin if you don't have a key)
-Iron (not strictly necessary, but nice to have)
