Front Zippered Pouch Quest No. 3

I was still prowling the net for more tutorials for my front zippered pouches. I hadn't realised how hard front zippered pouches are to construct and this realization is making me all the more determined to find the tutorial that will give a perfect finish. I simply can't stand any raw seams or unlined bags. It's so unfinished.

Kerri's tutorial is found at flickr so you can expect lots of step by step photos. Her tutorial hides raw seams by first sewing the seams on the right side. Turn the bag inside out and sew the seams on the wrong side. It's such a clever idea. In my haste I did not leave much allowance and my pouch just barely had enough room to sew the inside seams. (You'll know what I mean when you make the same mistake)

The "H' and "Y" are lopped off because I didn't leave enough allowance

The seams aren't raw
