MY OTHER RECIPES

1. To start, you’ll cut your fabric into 4 pieces sized at 8″x6″ pieces. (2 outside pieces, and 2 lining fabrics)

2. First you’ll lay 1 outside piece face up. Next you’ll lay your zipper face down so that they are right sides together and the zipper should be lined up with the edge. Pin in place. Place one of your lining fabric pieces on top of that, face down. You should have the zipper sandwiched between the fabric.

3. Sew them all together by stitching a straight line down the edge, going through both fabric pieces and the zipper. (You may have to lift your foot over the zipper pull as this can get tight.)

 4. Now fold the lining over, and then around to the back. You want to have the wrong sides of both the lining and main fabric touching.

 5. Repeat steps 2-4 with the other 2 pieces of outside and lining fabric. Place the opposite edge of your zipper (opposite edge from where you already sewed it to fabric.) face down onto your other main fabric piece, and place your other lining piece right side down on top. Stitch down edge, sewing through the fabric, lining and zipper. (Double check that you have your zipper and fabrics in the right order before sewing).
 6. Fold it open like you did with the first pieces.

7.  After checking that the zipper is sewed to correct sides, fold one of the main fabric pieces over so that it’s laying face down on the other. Continue in the same fashion with the lining fabric. Pin in place to keep the fabric lined up.

8. Making sure to unzip the zipper about halfway, sew all the way around the edges except for a small (about 2″) opening on the lining side. One thing to note: if you want the zipper to lay flatter and more squared after it is complete, fold the zipper toward the lining side so the bulk of the zipper is towards the lining side while you sew it together.

I’m do to update a few zipper pouches. I love the handles on these. Might have to add that to mine.
I’ve made quite a few myself without handles. Love all the pretty fabrics that were used.
