The buttercup purse was so cute but way too small for me.  Thanks for adding this tutorial!  I can't wait to try it.

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

Not a silly question at all!!!  In fact, you will need more fabric.  You might get away with a fat quarter for the outer bag but you will definitely need 1/2 metre (50cm or 20inches) of contrast fabric.

Thanks for this tutorial! I was wondering on how I could fit a zipper but being lazy I just used a snap and now regretting not using a zipper.

another smashing tutorial.

I tried this over the weekend and came up with this.




Overall, the zipper turned out pretty well, but for this type of box bag, I will need to make some alterations. It's a little bunchy in the corners and doesn't open as smoothly as I'd like. Maybe the technique at Uhandblog might be more suited. I have also seen ones where the zipper kinda trails off the ends and tucks into the bag. Still, a showstopper bag on a cosmetic level and I learned some new things.

Thanks for the awesome tutorials! Please keep writing them.

I think I know what you are asking!  You put the outer bag inside the lining bag with right sides together.  You just need to make sure you have left the zipper opened half way and that you have left a gap in the lining for turning.
