Another Triple-Zip

I promised you a tutorial a few weeks ago, when I made my first Triple-Zip Pouch, and you know - tutorials aren't that easy to do! I had alot of photos of the process from #1, and even some pretty detailed notes. But not quite detailed enough.
So Saturday night, later than I should have started a new project, I did. Glancing into my stash closet for something that would inspire me, I found fat-quarters of Violet Craft's Madrona Road. Luckily I had zippers on hand that coordinated well enough. (Thank you, zipit!)
And so I made another Triple-Zip, following my previous notes, and taking photos along the way again. So I'll share all that with you shortly, with one bit of caution: this isn't an every-detail-cut-and-dried, photo-of-every-single-step kind of tutorial. But it's close, and the most important info definitely is there. Just don't make this the first zip pouch you've ever made. Promise me, and you'll be fine.
Saying that, it isn't that the Triple-Zip is that difficult, it just has a few steps that are more complicated than the average single-zip. But honestly, once you get it, you've got it. And hopefully, I've done most of the mind-twisting work for you!

Thank you for a fabulous tutorial - I tried to write one once - it's a HUGE amount of work, so I always appreciate the effort that goes into posting one! I love making zipper bags, and I love finding new versions, so I can't wait to try this one out :) Jennie @ zipit is fabulous to work with - I get my zippers from her too :)

Wow!! Three zippers, that is intense. And yes, tutorials are a ton of work. I don't think anyone realizes how much work they are to put together until they have actually done one. Your tutorial is fabulous and there are so many people, including me, that so appreciate it!!!
