find the centre of your zipper and fold the fabric in half length ways to find the centre of the half circle, line up the middle of each and start to pin your zipper along  the edge, using a zipper foot will make this process easier Sew along the side of the zipper, next you will put the lining ontop and again sew along the same edge to attach the lining (make sure the lining and the main fabric is right sides together with the zipper sandwich in between

** You can of course sandwich the zipper between the main fabric and the lining all at once but it can be a little tricky sewing a zipper onto a curved edge so nothing wrong with doing it one step at a time if you are a beginner





This is how it will look once you have sew on the lining, now we will upzip the zipper and do the same thing on the other side, making sure the zipper isnt twisted and lining up with the edge of the main fabric and lining

no shame in using 1000 pins or clips haha

This is how it will look once you have done both sides, it will look puckered at the side where the zipper is attached but thats ok

Now you will flip it right sides out from one of the cut notches

Now you will do a top stitch next to the zipper to finish it off the zipper

*Use a long stitch length to make it a little more fancy and try to go as straight as you possible can

turn the bag inside out and pinch the notches lining up the zipper with the centre of the notch, clip into place and sew along that edge

add bias tape to finish it off

Turn right sides out and then your done!
