Hi! thanks for all your comments!! You are very nice  Cheesy

Asking your questions, the length of the toilet kit is about 12.6 inches (32 cm) and the width 3.54 inches (9cm). The most important thing is where do you sew the beginning of the zipper because it would determain the final shape. I didn't follow any rule, I just made trial and error just joining the zipper with the fabric using pins.

I hope I've been useful for you  Smiley

I guess I'm just not picturing how it's suppose to go together.  Do you need to start off with a separating zipper or do you use a regular zipper?  If you make another I'd love to see pics along the way.

Wow what a original, creative idea! I have definitely never seen that before. I never would have figured that out! You rock!

I'm a bit confused, but I think I need to try and figure this out.

It looks to me like it's a non-separating zipper and the "center" (point of connection between the two legs of the zipper) is placed at one "corner" of the fabric (I know it's rounded at the ends, but imagine the intersection of the long and short sides if it were indeed squared-off). 

I think the length of zipper determines the size of fabric you need (or vice-versa), as it appears that the total "circumference" of the fabric piece is the same as the total length of the opened zipper (ie 2x its zipped length).

This is totally cool.  I am also totally confused, but I think I might need to take a stab at making one - it's just too intriguing!!

This is exactly what it looks like to me.  I imagine that if you but the ends of the zipper further up the side of the piece your roll will be wider (fatter) when zipped.
