Sewing Stars, 
Thank you so much for that tutorial!  I'm definitely going to try.  I'm a little confused about how exactly to do it, but I'm much more of a kinesthetic learner and do better when I try it, myself.

Thanks for your excellent tutorial--I now see that my fear of zippers was completely irrational...Anyway, I used your tute to make a clutch. Instead of leaving the opening at the bottom side of the lining, though, I gave it slightly square corners a la the great Jordy bag and I left the opening in one of the bottom corners. That way, when you close up the opening, the stitches are tucked in the corner and you can't really see them unless you pull the lining out to scrutinize. If you stitched down the sides of the outside of the pouch(directly on the seam)  to "anchor" the lining, you probably could not see them at all. I also stuck in a wrist strap as I was sewing the sides.

I'm so excited to make more! I just got a bunch of new-old zippers at a thrift store, so I'm set for awhile.

Thanks, everyone for your positivity! 

choirgirl:  I'm especially happy to read that you're using it to make a clutch!  I can definitely see how incorporating some of the Jordy bag characteristics will help -- not to mention that your bag can then have a little more room inside thanks to the trademark square bottom.  Excellent tip!  I'm all over that!

Just one question. Is it big enough to be a make-up bag? Otherwise it looks great, and the tutorial is easy to follow!

I love this and I really want to try it but....I have no zipper foot!  Alas!  Is it possible to do it without one?  If so, how?

Thanks!
