Follow the instructions on the iron-on vinyl packaging to adhere the vinyl to your fabric.
I wanted to use french seams for the interior of my pouch so I wouldn’t need to sew up the gap left after I turned the fabric right side out. I left a 5/8″ gap on either side of my zipper end by putting in a zipper tab so the french seams wouldn’t encase part of the zipper. I didn’t show this step but if your zipper is too long, just cut a little longer than the length you need and then sew in the zipper tabs on each end.
To sew in the zipper, you need to make a sandwich. On the bottom is the lining fabric right side up. The middle is the edge of the zipper with the zipper pull facing up. The last piece is the exterior fabric wrong side up. Here is a picture of the fabric order. Note I turned up the exterior fabric to take this picture.
Turn your pouch right side out. Make sure you save the waxy paper the vinyl was adhered to. Place the shiny side of the paper on top of the vinyl to iron out the wrinkles. DO NOT IRON THE LAMINATE SIDE DIRECTLY BECAUSE IT WILL MELT! If you laminate the exterior and interior make sure you don’t iron with laminate sides touching because the heat of the iron will make them stick to each other.
