Half Moon Zipper Toiletry, make up or essential oil pouch

For this tutorial you will need Cotton Fabric, a Outer fabric and lining fabric

12″ or more length zipper

Fusible Fleece or Light to medium weight fusible interfacing

you will need 6″ bias tape, if you don’t have bias tape you can take the fabric the lining is made out of and createĀ  your own bias tape

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 alongĀ  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!

How to extend your zipper with zipper Tabs

To do a simple zipper tab to add a contrasting fabric – Cut 2 squares 2″ x 2″

If you need to expend a zipper to fit a project then you will cut a larger square

if you can use a zipper foot that will be the best thing as you can get a nice close seem

Sew along the edge of the fabric next to the zipper stopper

you will repeat the process on the other side of the zipper getting close to the little metal stoppers
