sorry for keepin ya waitin, my server was down again Grin

...zipper top tut....

Cut ur outer & inner fabric as shown in the pic (U don't need to cut it down the middle). I had cut this fabric to make a hobo bag but instead used it for the tut.


Now place ur lining right side up, then the zipper right side up (on top of the lining) n then the outer fabric wrong side up aligning the top edge and pin it.


Sew it in place, turn over and top stitch it for a finished look. Do the same with the other side.


This is what ull get.


Now separate both the linings n the outer fabrics at one side, like so


Stitch down the sides and bottom of both, leaving 2 hole in the linings bottom to turn it inside out. Its almost the same as the slouchy hobo bag but without those extra pieces of fabric around the zipper = )

This is what ull get in the end, add ur straps the way tinafish has shown in her slouchy hobo bag tut.




Hope this helps; well this type of zipper technique can be added to ur hobo, slouchy hobo, skipping bag etc., for adding a zip top to a skipping bag this link might help.

For the grey bag, I used separate pieces of fabric for the sides and bottom. In the tut I didnt have much fabric so I just sewed the sides n bottom. Any prob, just ask Smiley

Cheers.

I really love the shape and the neatness of the 2nd one and the leather one.  You do great work and all I can say is don't throw away your talents for good.  You have the rest of your life and just remember you can pick it back up anytime if you really want to.  You have a real talent.  Cheesy

You definitely have to keep sewing.. your man will get used to it eventually. My sweetie even helps  me choose the fabrics and in choosing patterns and such! Occasionally he will threaten to throw all of my supplies (and me) out of the window.. hehe.. but he's very supportive most of the times.
