Thank you very much to share this.
I've just finished one of this and I was thinking of adding a zipper to the second one I've planned to sew, but I had no idea how to do it.
thanks again!

I am probably going to sound sooo dumb right now...how do you enlarge the pattern 125% to print it out?  I am a little slow when it comes to computers...  Thanks for the help!

Thanks for all your lovely comments everyone!!  Wink

Fantastic instructions on the modifications.  I think this will be my next project!!  Can you tell me what size zipper you used for this bag??

Thank U

I used a 40cm/16" zipper.  It was too long but I just trimmed the end without the metal end clip.  Just be careful sewing over the zipper teeth when sewing on the tabs.  Whenever I go over the zipper teeth I just hand wind the machine.

I am probably going to sound sooo dumb right now...how do you enlarge the pattern 125% to print it out?  I am a little slow when it comes to computers...  Thanks for the help!

You will need a photocopier that copies onto A3.  Then to enlarge, just push the buttons to get to 125%.  That should work.

Great tutorial. After making this bag the regular size I can see exactly why you enlarged it. I am glad I was able to read your tips before trying to assembly my bag. The next one will definitely be a little larger. And, thanks for posting your cell phone pocket instructions, they worked perfectly.
I did make one change of my own. I put a D-ring on a fabric strip on each side and then attached my purse strap to that. I have a clip for my keys and need the d-ring to hook that too. I also put a zippered pocket inside on the other side of the lining.

This is fantastic! And perfect timing, as well, I'm in dire need of a new purse...

Another silly question from another sewing newbie: Can you still make this (enlarger 125%) with a fat quarter (as stated in the original pattern)? Or will you need a bit more fabric?
Thanks Smiley
