Your zipper should measure the whole length of one side of the curved edge.

First mark the centre of your zipper, mark the centre of each moon. use those as guides to line up the outer fabric, lining and zipper

Take the zipper, with the zipper pull towards the outer fabric sandwich it between the outer and lining fabric from one side of the moon to the other side, using a million clips will help keep it in place

Snip the curve onces sew to help it the zipper flatten

Open your zipper and mirror the zipper on the opposite side,

turn the pouch inside out and do up the zipper, punch the bottom an sew a baste stitch close to the edge,



Snip off the excess zipper and use matching fabric to bind the edge.

    I love you you easily explain and show everything that you’re doing. Makes it sew (pun intended) much easier for novices such as myself who can mess up even the easiest pattern.

    I just need a new bag for some craft tools and this will just suit me, I might enlarge it slightly.
