Begin Woven Stitch Pattern:
The moss stitch, aka the woven stitch/ linen stitch in the round is multiple of 2.
The stitches are worked into the chain 1 spaces of previous round and not the loops of the stitches!

Note: For a straight seam of the woven stitch in the round, you will need to turn your work after each round, working one round on the right side and one round on the wrong side (inside) of the pouch. 

1) Zig-Zag Version worked with 2 colors:

For the zig-zag pattern you will change colors after each 2 rounds.

R5: Continue with B; 1ch, 1 sc in same st, *1 ch, sk 1 sc, 1 sc in next sc*, repeat around from * to * till last sc, ch 1, sk last sc, join with sl st to top of first sc.
(35 sc and 35 ch spaces)
Turn and work on the inside of the pouch!

You should have 4 zig-zag stripes color B and 3 zig-zag stripes color A.

R19 - R23: work the same as R5 - R6, only using color A; turn your work after each round. At the end of the last round, don’t ch1 anymore and finish off invisibly.

Sew the zipper on using your sewing machine, or by hand using the back stitch. You can also attach the zipper with a Sharp Crochet Hook and crochet thread using surface crochet as  in this tutorial by Moogly.
If you like, you can also line your pouch before sewing the zipper on. 

2) Tricolor Woven Stitch Pattern:
Change colors after each round, alternating the 3 colors.
Note: The color change will be made the same way as for the first version, after joining into round with the old color. After you turn to work on the other side, pick new color yarn, ch1 and continue with new color.

R5: Continue with B; 1ch, 1 sc in same st, *1 ch, sk 1 sc, 1 sc in next sc*, repeat around from * to * till last sc, ch 1, sk last sc, join with sl st to top of first sc.
