Sandwich one short edge of the exterior fabric piece and one short edge of the lining fabric piece with the zip edge in between to attach the zip to one side. you want the zipper pull side (right side) facing the right side of the exterior fabric.

Do the same for the other short edges of the exterior and lining pieces and the other side of the zip.

Sewing tutorial

Unzip to flip the fabric the right side out. Top Stitch 1/8″ away from the zip. Do this carefully to ensure you are sewing only through the exterior and lining and not the whole pouch.
