It took me a loooooong time, but i finally figured out how to put a zipper into a purse in a way that looks good and actually works. 

I made the beige purse for my mom. I like the navy, red and white one better. I still have lots of that fabric left, so I'm going to make a larger purse with it and put some pockets inside. Smiley

Great design! I especially like the one on the left, I'm sucker for big patterns.  Did you use a tute or anything for figuring out the zipper?

nice bags. I  don't usually have a problem with my bag, Friday it fell on the floor while I was at the vet's with my cats and everything, I mean everything fell out all over the floor. If I had of put a zipper in it I wouldn't have been crawling all over picking up crap.

Thanks for making the time to make that tute. That sounds pretty darn interesting. I'm going to have to try that method myself. Seems much easier then they way I do it. Thank you.
