Open zipper and line up the drawn line, just below the zipper

The right side front of zipper pouch will be touching the right side of the envelope pouch.  The point will be loose and past the zipper.

Sew on this line right below the zipper of the other pouch.  This is kind of tricky, keep you needle down when making any adjustments.  You will be moving part of the tube out of the way while sewing.

Sew down each side – you can leave the bottom unsewn.  You will be sewing through the sides of both pouches
