I just want to say, I followed these instructions for the first time and...

... They RAWK!... it was so totally easy and made sense when you were doing it.

My only problem was that while I was finishing top stitching the zipper at the end, I messed up cause I went AROUND the zipper pull. I didn't think enough to move the zipper out of the way before finishing. And I think someone said you should tape the little flaps down to keep them even.

thanks so much Smiley i'm going to go try it right now

i honestly never understand zipper tutorials, but i think (after reading it about 12 times) i get this one! I kept missing the stitching part of step 3, so step 5 was just baffling. lol

great job though! your bag is amazing.

That was the most amazing tutorial. I made a bag with an inside pocket like that but I just improvised looking at an existing bag. Your way of doing it is much easier, especially using the facing to sew the actual pocket on. THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

thank you for this tutorial! it was really so easy and quick!
i just posted earlier to a different zipper tutorial because i tried that one first ... for some reason yours seemed scary at first! but it was very easy and well described. i don't know why i was being a wimp.


it might be a little hard to see because my camera was having a problem with my lighting choice. but it's awesome in real life, believe me. thank you!

hey, i do personal swaps! especially for fiber. i am addicted to fiber & yarn. addicted.
