Hello! I just did a post on “How to Sew a Zip Pouch”. This tutorial also for beginner and it’s very easy to make! Let’s follow step by step!
- Cotton fabric
- sewing thread
- sewing machine
- rotary cutter
- cutting mat
- Pins / clips
- Outer piece 8 x 5″ x 2 pcs
- Inner piece 8 x 5″ x 2 pcs
- Zipper 7″
Place a lining piece, then place the zipper on top right facing up, zipper head face right side.
Pin or clip it in place and sew. Do the Same on the second piece for the other side.
This time place second lining piece, place the zip with the other side with the zipper facing up,zipper head point left.
When you open up, it will look like this.
Unzip the zipper half way.
Align the zipper teeth face each other.
Then face the piece facing each other with lining by lining, outer by outer piece.
Align or adjust the zipper teeth in order again to make sure it won’t go out of place before you sew.
Leave a gap with 4-5″ wide or use you hand make a stone to measure the gap (This is for turn over later). Sew all the 3 sides.
Do a backstitch when you reach the zipper side, to give it a good secure.
Once done, Turn it right side out. Push and adjust all the corners for a nice finishing.
Flip out the lining piece, sew a straight stitch to close the gap. AND YOU ARE DONE!
