WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE THE DOUBLE ZIPPED FOLDABLE BAG
Laminated cotton fabric is what I use here. It is basically a cotton quilt weight fabric that has been coated with plastic/vinyl material thus making it water resistant.
Alternative fabric choice : PUL fabric, lightweight rip-stop fabric, shower curtain, or any lightweight water resistant fabric.
2x all purpose zippers or #3 zipper for the closures
1 set of button snap (12 or 12.5 mm)
1/8" or 1/4" basting tape to baste the zippers.
Basic sewing notions
Leather hole punch tool
