Does anyone have a pattern and/or tute for a zippered top Jordy Bag?  I like to keep my bags closed as I always seem to tip in over somehow and the contents fall out.  Grin

This zipper pocket tute was pretty darn idiot proof. Thank god for that.

However, I wanted to add a caution (which could have very well been obvious to others but not me). I discovered today that you need to catch the very top of the facing&back of the zipper pocket in the upper seam of the bag to keep it from slouching and altering the shape of the bag oddly. Hope that makes sense. Ultimately you can stabilize it with some buttons if you missed this. That's what I'm doing right now!

I should probably PM the tute-maker about this because who can wade through 13 pages to get here. I couldn't get myself to read it all to make sure nobody else brought this point up which is why I'm not PMing the fabulous creator of this tute. It's a vicious circle, eh?

The bag in its normal hanging habitat:


The bag if I put my wallet in the zipper pocket:


I'm wasting away in slouchville! ouchville!

kermit6, wouldn't another fix be to make the zipper pocket as deep as the rest of the bag?  Then the wieght of the billfold would be supported by the base of the bag instead of being suspended by the top seam.

thank you so much for your great visual instructions for this pocket.  I've been leary to attempt to put a zippered pocket in my handbags, and you've made it so easy for me now! 

I'm a visual learner, I think, and you just did a fabulous job on this tute!  Many thx!!

yes fidget, i definitely think that is another solution. the pocket shape would be doable in this scenario. given my experiences now tho (18 mths later) it would still be a bit unstable. if the billfold were really fat/wide it would still tug the portion of the pocket above the zipper down. for me the ideal pocket would be caught in the upper seam and go to the base of the bag. optimum stability!
