Measure along the line of where the seam is to be sewn, not the edge of the fabric with seam allowance- to get the proper circumference.

If your front piece is 5x5 + .5" SA, then the circumference is 20 (5x4), not 24 (6x4). For your desired 11x3 footprint, it's 28" circumference, and not 32" as I assume you have used.

For your desired 11x3 footprint, it's 28" circumference, and not 32" as I assume you have used.I am uncertain with your math. If I want the pouch to be 5x5, I would add 1/2" SA to each side so I would cut out a 6x6 square. I do not understand how your circumference is 20 and not 24. For my Skinny Mini, the pouch was to be 11x3x2.5. So I cut out two side piece that were 12x4 - which included 1/2" SA. Are you saying that when I put the zipper ring together, it needs to have a perimeter of 28? Please respond.jaYson
