Cut a strip of fabric 3 3/4? wide by 18? long and Sew along the long side to create a tube. Turn the tube under 1/4? on each of the short edges and press. Do the Top stitch.
Pull the bow pieces out until you have a bow that you love! Cut 2 rectangles 8? by 9.5? one from canvas and one from cotton. Back the cotton with fusible interfacing.
Lay the cotton right below the fabric. Place the zipper face down along the long edge of the stack and finish the edge. Now Press and topstitch 1/8? from the seam.
Sew the other side of the fabric to the zipper. Finish the seam. Turn and topstitch. Open the zipper partway and turn it inside out. Pin the short edges with the zipper lined up in the middle.
Then sew the short edges and trim the excess zipper. Turn right side out. Unzip the zipper just a little bit. Hands stitch the bow to the pouch right at the top. And you’re done!
