CUTTING CHART
OUTSIDE FABRIC: 11″ x 8″
LINING FABRIC: 11″ x 7″
ZIPPER: 12″

With right sides together, sew the top of the lining and the top of the exterior fabric together using a 3/8th’s inch seam allowance. Backstitch at the beginning and the end.

Press the seam towards the lining and turn the fabric right side out. Repeat with the other side.

Lay one of the fabrics with the main print facing upwards. Lay the zipper on top of the seam and pin in place.

With the zipper open, sew the left side of the zipper to the left side of the pouch, using a zipper foot. If this step is tricky for you, be sure to use plenty of pins and go slowly.

Once the first side is sewn, zip the zipper back up and pin the other side. This will help you to align each side perfectly. Unzip the zipper and sew along the zipper. Once you reach the zipper, backstitch and lift the presser foot. Zip the zipper to the top and begin stitching again until you reach the end.

Align the exterior pieces of fabrics with right sides together and repeat with the lining fabrics. Make sure to leave the zipper open before you begin sewing!
Carefully align all seams together before sewing. You may need to hand-crank the sewing machine to get it over the zipper.

Pin well and stitch (5/8th’s inch seam allowance) along all four sides leaving a 3-inch hole for turning along the bottom of the lining.

Trim back the seam allowance around the entire bag, especially the corners. This will eliminate any excess bulk.

Gently pull the bag through the small hole. Push the corners out using a turning tool.
Sew the opening closed by stitching close to the edge.

Push the lining back into the bag and press.
