1Cut a piece of fab­ric mea­sur­ing 35 x 30cm, then do the same with the matt vinyl. Lay the vinyl onto the wrong side of the fab­ric and cover with a tea towel. Iron on a medium set­ting for 8-10 min­utes un­til bonded. Fold in half length­ways and draw di­ag­o­nal lines on each side, start­ing 4cm in from the top cut edges and end­ing at the same side bot­tom cor­ners.

2Cut away these two tri­an­gles. With fab­ric fac­ing right side up, line up the zip with the edge of one short end, right side up. Open the zip­per and pin in place. Thread the ma­chine with black thread and use a zip­per foot at­tach­ment to sew in place. Take the other top edge and line it up with the other side of the zip, right sides to­gether. Pin and stitch into place.

3Switch to your stan­dard sewing-ma­chine foot and thread with white cot­ton. Sew down one side with a 1cm seam al­lowance and re­peat on the other side. To make the bot­tom gus­set, open up the point into a tri­an­gle and draw a line per­pen­dic­u­lar to the seam mea­sur­ing 5cm across. Stitch along the line and re­peat on the other side. Snip off both points and turn right side out.
