Open your zipper all the way. Lay your fabric with the Outer fabric facing up. Place the zipper with the right side of the zip DOWN along the top short edge. Try to make sure zipper is centered so that there is an equal amount of zipper overhanging each side of the fabric. Pin and stitch.
Flip your pouch so that it is inside out again. Next, take your 2" square and fold two raw edges toward the center. Iron. Fold in half to hide the raw edges. Topstitch down both long edges.
