Cut out your tags and pin them onto your exterior fabric. You will be sewing with a 1/4″ seam allowance so make sure the tag is at least about 1/2″ away from the sides and bottom. Pin in place and sew on with a zig zag stitch. The tag won’t fray, so technically you don’t need a zig zag stitch, I just think it makes it look more finished.
Now to assemble the pouch. If you used a sew in interfacing you will layer that first. Then place your exterior front right side up on top of the interfacing. Next lay your zipper face down with the pull to the left.
Next lay your lining right side down on top of the zipper. Pin and sew in place making sure you are sewing through all the layers.
To assemble the back you will again layer the interfacing and exterior back right side up. The zipper will lay face down with the pull to the right this time. Add your lining right side down, pin, and sew.
Now if you are wanting to add any labels on the inside you can go ahead and sew those in.
This step is optional, but I think it makes it look more finished. You will stitch the tops of the exterior fabrics. the lining will be directly under the exterior fabric so it to will be stitched. When I do this step I always make sure to pull the exterior and interior bottom taut as I am sewing.
Next separate the exterior pieces and the lining pieces. Un-zip the zipper. Then pin the lining pieces together and the exterior pieces together.
Starting on the lining piece just before the zipper start sewing with 1/4″ seam allowance. Sew all the way around leaving a couple inches opening. Turn the pouch right side out through the opening. Next turn the raw edges of the opening in, iron, then sew shut!
All done! Enjoy your custom zipper pouch!
