    Thanks @craige I’ve got this so far, similar, returning to it tomorrow. (Drawn out on dust sheet which has turned out to be a really useful prototype fabric). Zip at top of front face.

    Thanks @Clare @craige nailed it. You can easily adjust size to the needs.

    Nice pack as always. BTW, "for friends to borrow" is supposed to be the official excuse for not getting rid of a pack you've not used for three years... not for making brand new ones. ;)

    :angelic: Last one for a while

    First time I’ve used it and the pack hasn’t been used yet but for <$12/yd it seems great. Well behaved, easy to work with, appears pretty tear resistant... guess that’s all I can say for now

    Question: how do you sew in the zip when the construction at that point is a tube but the desired stitching direction is 90 degrees to the machine swing arm. Ie you can’t slip the tube over the swing arm because it’s 90 degrees wrong.

    Sorry having trouble being clear.

    Let a picture speak. I want to sew the zip East to west but because it’s a tube I can only go north to south

    Hard to see what your attempting to make but I'd probably look at sewing each side of the zip tape on first (while it's flat) then put the slider on, similar to that illustrated in THIS THREAD.

    I didn’t buy continuous coil zip so that’s not an option. The zip is fixed closed at one end. But perhaps that’s the answer anyway, to buy continuous coil aqua seal.

    If the zip is long enough you could just cut the closure off.

    @Clare as @Whiteburn said. Open ziper up. Sew the ziper to the edge. Close the zip. Do the corners.

    Tinkering with a new style of waist pouch, lots of potential space. Again, the colour is a dark red, but starting to like the electric pink!

    Sorry, as much as I'd like to have one of your pouches, it is at the back of my needs at the moment. I was made redundant and am now looking for a job.... Whilst walking the dales way :whistling:

    I’ll be interested to know how you get on with that long strip of Velcro @stonemonkey, I got rid of the flap straight away :mad: and just use one square

    If you are doing a mk2 version it’s easy to make it 3D to suit pouch meals. I think I used a pour and store bag stuffed with socks to make my template :roflmao:
