I made one! Thanks so much Erika! Your tutorial was wonderful!

Here are some pics...I added a felt applique to the front to make it more interesting, I had a lot of fun!

And the lining...

I would have liked to get the zippy corners more sharp and cornerish but I am still darn happy with how it turned out! Thanks again!

(this was my first time sewing a zipper in, and obviously my first time with a zipper foot!)

OK I think I am having one of my blonde moments or maybe I am tired.  Are you using a huge seam allowance when you sew the lining and the outside together to catch the zipper in it so the ends of the zipper is closed up?  I used a tiny seam allowance and obviously the ends are open.....

I had this problem for the longest time, then I took a moment to really look close to the pictures and how they progress... the last one isn't nearly as wide it seems, so I think a huge allowance is used there - there's also a pic of "cutting off the excess" so I think she makes the seam allowance to cut the open ends off the zipper and then cuts off that excess from the sides before turning inside out.   Since I like the original width and don't want it to be so stout, I use a zipper that's slightly too long and just sew up the sides to cut off the zipper before it gets to the natural ends... if that makes sense, lol Smiley

I made one!  It was for a swap.  I sewed strips of flannel fabric to batting from the outside edge to outside edge so I didn't have to quilt it.  Here it is with buttons for decoration:

Thanks for the tutorial! I'll be making more I'm sure.

Gingerquilts:  I really like your colour choices.  The patchwork and buttons are really pretty.  Your swap parnter is pretty lucky.

I usually have about a 1cm seam allowance for mine.  I sew the lining pieces together and the outer pieces together, going near enough to the ends of the zipper so that the corners will turn out nicely (I'm still working on getting this right, sometimes it goes to close and so doesn't turn out so nicely Sad )  Then I trim the seam allowance down a bit, especially where the zipper ends are to again help with the corners, so yes I chop the end material bits of the zipper of then.  Don't know if that helps at all :S

And Gingerquilts, I love your, the colours and buttons are lovely - great job!

I'm very into Britney Spears' early work, before she sold out, so mostly her, um, finger painting and macaroni art.
