Here's another pouch I made.  It's deeper and shorter than the first.

nice job, nice idea. did you line this one?
if anyone is worried Undecided about the edge fraying, you could try a french seam. just a thought. ooh and if you added a handle-strap it could be a little clutch purse. you're inspiring me... where do you find so W - - I - - D - - E grosgrain ribbon?

Hey, that's really cool.  I had no idea you could put zippers in that way.

indigo flower girl, I found the ribbon at Poppy Fabrics in Oakland, California.  The wide ribbon is 1 1/2".  No, I didn't line this one-- too bone-tired, but still couldn't fight the urge to make a purse!  I woke up at 3:30 a.m. thinking that it would have been great with a pink satin lining.  Also, this would make a nice wristlet.
For anyone trying this zipper technique:  don't give up when trying to feed the end of the zipper through the pull.  It takes a little bit of gentle pushing and
tugging.

I made a lined one.  I think I prefer the pouch unlined.


This zipper was very easy to zip up.  I just inserted the end of the zipper into the pull and started zipping.  No tugging!

Ack! The word "slide" makes it sound so easy! I can't, for the life of me, seem to get the other side of the zipper to "slide" in. How did you do it?

Oh, no!  For the last pouch I just kinda set the end of the zipper into the pull and started zipping and it worked on my first attempt.  The first pouch was a little trickier.  Are you using one of those plastic zippers or a metal one?  I used a plastic zipper.  Uh... uh... you have to shove the end in and hold it there with one hand while tugging on the zipper.  I wish I could do it for you!  Sorry!  Please don't give up!

 Cry my suggestion, if you can make sure your zipper will work for this project. for some reason i can get the slider on but it won't zip. the teeth come together ok but then it gets real stiff and pops. Sad it was a plastic one.
