Spring forward to March 4th: My friend Tonya posted a video showing how she puts in a zipper when she makes a coin purse. I watched it and thought "hey, I can do that!"
So I ordered a few zippers. They came in and I let them sit. Finally, a couple of nights ago, I cut some fabric. Then I took one of the zippers and had a go at it. I did not follow Tonya's method exactly. (I needed to watch that video a few more times to cement all the steps in my head!) But guess what? It worked!
I made this little zippered bag.
It has a zipper that works just fine. I am amazed at how good it looks too. The bag is reasonably straight and has a nice boxed bottom. It sits upright without being propped. Yaay!
Thanks Tonya, you are T-riffic!
