Zipper pouch tutorial…new and detailed!

My new zipper bag tutorial is a follow-up to the previous one posted here. Since I gave my first zipper pouch to my mom, I decided to make a few more.

This time, I made the zippers in alternating positions. The pouch size depends on the number of zippers you use. For this pouch, I used 11 pieces of a 9-inch length zipper, I blended red, orange and yellow for a cheerful look.

First,line up the zippers with the zipper heads in alternating direction.

Sew the zippers together with a 4mm overlap.

Now, sew the outer ends with the edges of the zipper one on top of the other.

Turn the zipper inside out, unzip the zippers a few centimeters and trim  about 1/2 inch on both ends.

I also tried it with blue and green zippers with a different sewing method :

After lining up 17 zippers and all zipper heads are in one direction, sewed the edges of the zippers by one zipper on top of the other.

Sew the outer edge together, unzip the zippers a few centimeters, trim about 1/2 inch both ends, turn it inside out and sew the edges together.

( i made a pretty stronger sewing stitch here)
