Once the silk has dried, gently press (make sure the iron is at the correct setting for your fabric) and cut the fabric to 12 x 17
in. (30 x 42.5cm). This will give you a bag measuring 10 x 8 in. (25 x 20 cm).
Open the zipper and pin one side of the zipper to one of the short ends of the fabric, right sides together, with the underside of the zipper facing upward. Using the zipper foot on your sewing machine, stitch in place. Repeat to attach the other side of the zipper to the other short edge. You should now have a “tube” of fabric, joined together by the zipper. Change to a flat seam foot and zigzag stitch these two edges to prevent fraying.
