Yes, it goes the way you're saying!! It's difficult to explain it but not difficult to do..so I think the best you can do is just try it!!

Maybe it can help you the third picture: the case totally unzipped.

I'm glad you are so interested!! Thanks!!  Smiley I'm looking forward to see new cases !!

What a cool idea.  I'm trying to wrap my mind around it but I guess I need to wrap my hands around it and try to make one.  Thanks for the inspiration.  Now off to look for the right zipper and fabric.  Will post pics if accomplished.

Did you have right sides together when you sewed the zipper in, and then turn it right sides out and slip stitch it closed?

This is definitely going to be one of my favorite stocking stuffers, if I can get it made right.

yes! you're right; I did it as you say!  Wink . It was a little bit difficult sewing the rounded part because the zipper is rigid and I had to hold it in the position I wanted. But when you put the fabric in its right side small mistakes are hidden  Smiley

Thanks for the information about how you put it together.  I tried with one layer of fabric and the wrong kind of zipper (a hidden zipper) but I could see how it would work with a sturdier zipper.  I definitely will make some and post pictures.

You are quite talented to see one and then make it yourself.  I'm not necessarily a pattern person and just wing stuff so this will be a challenge.

Hi there!
Last week I did these two cases....I saw this idea in an art street market and I just made it. The most difficult thing is calculating where do you must to sew the beginning of the zipper because it will determine the width and the length of your case. If you have that clear the sewing matter is quite simple.
My first creation was the toilet kit. This was made by denim in the outside and by white cotton fabric in the inside.
My second creation, the glasses case, was made by leather and the lining was polar (this fabric is very soft so I thought it would be perfect for the glasses).
I hope you like my cases. If you made some of them, please show it to me!
Thanks for reading!!
When I saw this post, I immediately thought of this tutorial on Creadoo.  My German is a little rusty, so I couldn't really translate it (and I was never very good at reading it anyway), but the pictures should give some clue as to how it all goes together.

That site looks like they use one long zipper piece with the pull attached later? There is no point where the two halves come together! I used a longer zipper than necessary (read: measured wrong) and I didn't care to add lining as I was just trying it for fun, so I made the extra length into a handle.
