Step 1: Start by measuring the size which you would like the pouch to be. I used a 4 inch zipper and left a bit of extra fabric on the edges to compensate for seams. Note: Position your measurements on the fold of fabric so that the bottom of the pouch will be where the fold is.
Step 2: After marking and pinning fabric where you choose, make the cut.
Step 3: Repeat Step 1 on the wrong side of fabric that will be used for the outer layer.
Step 4: With inner and outer layers together, fold under edge and pin to zipper. Repeat for the other side of the zipper.
Step 5: Switch to a zipper foot, and attach the zipper.
Step 6: Turn the fabric inside out.
Step 7: Sew the side seams of pouch. Then turn pouch right side out.
Voila! You have finished your handy dandy pouch! Insert jewelry or other gift for your Valentine.
