Avolian,

I think the best advice is to look at your machine manual.  I found out that the zipper foot on different machines may look a little different, and perhaps they may work a little bit differently, too.  I had never used my zipper foot before this project and frankly, didn't know how to put it on.  I sort of experimented to use it so that it felt right.  I still don't know if I'm using it right or not.

If any of you craftsters find a way to more discreetly stitch up that final opening, would you please share??  I'm making several and really don't like the way I'm handling it right now. 

I'm so happy you all have found this thread useful!

I just made my first successful lined zipper pouch--It turned out great!  Grin Thanks again.

I used a 7" zipper and 8.25" x 7" pieces of fabric (lined up the zipper along the longest part of the fabric).  I edge stitched (with sewing machine, and the edge stitch foot) the seam along the top of the zipper... and that is how I also sewed up the bottom open edge inside the lining. I have seen professional ones done that way. I can't think of any other way to make it work... I'd like to hear other people's suggestions, too.  Oh, I also sewed the lining depth a little shorter than the exterior,if that makes any sense. The lining seems to fit better that way.

So, like I said, I'm sewing illiterate . . .

What is an "edge stitch"?  And a "blind stitch"?

good job on the tutorial, Me personally I am lazy and I just machine sew my turning hole with matching thread, but if I am being professional (snickers) I use a blind stitch like Ms. Afrodite suggests. I figure if people are going to look that closely at my finishing techniques they maybe should get out more lol. I handsew when called for like on hems or when I baste. Remember girls basting is your friend, and so are tailor tacks! I don't need no stinking pins.
