Cut four pieces of your PUL…I cut mine to be 7″x9″.
Lay out one piece, right side up. Lay the zipper on one short end, zip facing up.
Sandwich the zipper with another piece of fabric like so.
Pin along that side, but make sure to only pin where the seam allowance will hide your holes. Holes do not go away with this kind of fabric!
Then using your zipper foot, sew along the side you pinned, with 3/8″ seam allowance.
Flip the fabrics so they are right side out and both pieces are on one side of the zipper.
Then layer again with the other two pieces.
Pin and sew that side the same way.
Then fold your 7″ piece of twill tape/ribbon in half and pin and sew to the top part of the outside of the bag. Just make sure your zipper looks like the picture, and you’ll be good.
Now lay out your bag like this, with the bottom two pieces right sides together, and the top two pieces RST also.
A closer look. I didn’t pin, but you could as long as you stay within the seam allowance!
starting at the bottom, sew around the entire bag with a 3/8″ seam allowance, leaving an opening for turning.
When you get to the zipper, pinch the ends of the zipper together, making sure the teeth are pointed up towards the top of the bag. (the side with the tab)
Turn right side out through the hole…
Then to sew the opening shut. I used my sewing machine’s walking foot, which helps immensely when sewing with PUL. Laying down tissue paper underneath helps also. (just rip it away when you’re done)
Tada! A quick and easy wet bag for all your…wet stuff needs!
