I tried your zipper method and it's sooo easy! Before, I was kinda scared of puttin' in a zipper in a purse.   Just went to Hancock's and got 12 zippers on sale!  Yahoo!  Thanks, SewPixie!

Thank You!!!

I have read and re-read all of the zipper posts, and it just wouldn't "click" with me... I re-read this one a few times and finally the lightbulb came on and I GET IT! I thought it would never happen LoL.... now I gotta go make a bag with a zipper pocket before I lose it  Cheesy

Wow! Thanks so much for that. I'm about to make a school bag for a friend and I want it to look super perfect since she's my best friend. This just helped me out!!  Smiley

yay! I'm so happy the tute is helping other people out.

i'm happy to report that the zipper pockets are holding up really well. i may experiment with other opening shapes (like a wavy one instead of a straight rectangle). i'll post if it turns out well.

not sure how many other people use the double-sided wonder tape but i highly recommend it! it works great on zippers and for hems and stuff for stretchy material.

Thank you so much for the tutorial, it's very clear! I think I can actually make  a bag with a zipper pocket now, whoo hoo! First I have to buy a zipper first though, hah.  Tongue

I'm in love with that bag and, moreso, that spotted fabric!  (I have a thing for circles/spots right now).  I was planning on making a bag-now I'll have a place to keep my cell phone away from my clumsy nature of tipping my bag over
