Great tutorial!  I will bookmark it for later, I'm still too freaked out to sew a zipper, but your explanation is really helpful. Smiley

Great tutorial!  I just tried this last night, but unfortunately I couldn't figure out attaching the d-ring loops onto the zipper.  Here are a few shots of the bag, I was really proud of everything other than the d-ring parts:
Not too bad looking

The nice side of the zipper

And the horrid back!

I also ended up with a lot of extra lining

A few other shots



Could someone explain how to do the d-ring loops for me?  I would really appreciate it!

IchBeisse, oh honey, I wish I could be with you to show you in person how to do those darn dee rings.  Pictures and text can be so limiting.  It looks like you have all the right pieces.  You made your loop out of the main fabric and attached it the the zipper piece.  Make sure you FOLD DOWN the lining pieces and just stitch that loop to ONLY the main fabric and zipper. 


This way you can attach the main fabric to main fabric and the lining to lining.  (You are only sewing through the first layer and not through the lining.)  Then you pin together the main body section to the top part of the "zipper piece". 
When you get to the ends, you are going to catch the raw end of the dee ring loop in the seam with the top of the side piece.
Here is what it looks like when you have it all sewn together...

On the end that I have circled, there are two little tails.  One where the lining of the "zipper part" is attached to the rest of the lining and one where the main fabric of the "zipper part and the raw end of the dee ring loop and the main fabric from the side of the bag are all sandwiched together and sewn.  This really is the hardest part of the bag. 
I hate all of this technical talk.  I feel like I'm speaking a foreign language.  I really hope this helps you.  I'm so sorry you are having trouble. Undecided
Totally unrelated...I really love the fabric you chose.  I actually have the same black poka dot stuff and made a headband out of it.

You might want to snoop around for a smaller lot.  I bought a bunch.. that is why I tend to incorporate them into a lot of my bag designs. Wink
