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 would really like to try this. Just one question… After you sew the outer fabric, the zip and the lining together so then the wrong sides are on the outside, then turn it out, how do you do it? Do you use the hole at the end of the open zip to pull it through? It looks a bit small. Or maybe I’ve misunderstood the instructions.

    Thank you

      yep you use that tiny whole to turn it right sides out, it looks small but it is very doable, check out the video tutorial linked in the blog post to watch me do it!
