For people who prefer the written word, here are the bullet point steps to make up your zip top bag project. You’ll find this method works for pretty much any regular zip you want to add to your sewing projects. The trick is, as always, making sure you have the pieces the right way around! Check twice, sew once.

  1. Cut two outer pieces and two lining pieces.

  3. Repeat with the other side.
  4. Place one of the lining pieces right sides together with one of the outer pieces, along the top edge. The zip will be sandwiched in the middle. Pin and stitch.
  5. Repeat with the remaining lining piece. Press the fabric at the zip area.
  6. Open the zip slightly so you can turn through at the end stage. Bring the right sides of both outer and lining together. Lining to lining and outer to outer. Pin these edges together and stitch. Sewing only the the sides and bottoms. Leave the cut out corners unstitched. At the edge below the zip on the lining leave a gap for turning through.
  7. To sew the corners bring the seams of each corner together in the middle, flatten out the edges, stitch across from one side to the other with the seam in the middle.
  8. Turn the pouch to the right side through the gap in the lining. Press the edges and stitch close to the edge to close the gap.
