Step 1: Materials & Prep
should be about 2/3 the width (example using a 9” zipper, cut your fabric 9” X 6”). If you’re purchasing fabric for this project, fat quarters
from the quilters section of your fabric store will work well, and provide enough fabric for 2 bags.
Step 2: Bag Construction - Step 1
Lay the zipper, right side up on top of the lining.
Lay a piece of the outer fabric on top of the zipper (fabrics pieces
should be “right sides together”).
Stitch the 2 pieces of fabric & the zipper together (at the top edge).
Step 3: Bag Construction - Step 2
The two pieces of fabric will now have the wrong sides of the fabric facing one another.
Repeat step one with the remaining pieces of fabric.
Step 4: Bag Construction - Step 4
Turn the fabric so that the right sides are facing one another with the 2 pieces of lining on one side, and the 2 pieces of outer fabric on another. The zipper tape, and seam fabric should be on(towards) the lining side.
Stitch along the edges, using a 5/8” seam allowance, leaving an opening to turn everything right side out.
Push the lining into the pouch.
