Okay, so this is how I put a zipper pocket in a Jordy bag. You craftsters may very well have easier/better ways, and if so please share them on this thread.

Also, if something seems confusing please let me know. Zippers are kinda hard to sew and take practice, so don't get discouraged. Afterall one of the best inventions ever is the seam ripper...





Good Luck and Happy Sewing!

Wow! Very impressive. My usual method consists of sewing one side of the (open) zipper directly to the lining fabric, and then sewing a finished pocket (a rectangle sewn right sides together, turned through a small hole) to the other side. The I just sew around the edge of the pocket, directly onto the lining.

 Its very easy but not as nice looking as the pocket you made sewing stars!  Grin

Also - I'm curious as to what kind of interfacing you use! Your bag looks so nice and sturdy Smiley

Hey Thanks.

I use fusable shirt collar interfacing. At Joann's it is the Pellon brand called ShirTailor« 950F. It works pretty well, but it takes time to iron it on because it doesn't adhere without a lot of heat.

Thank you so much for this.  I'm just beginning to dip my toes into the world that is zippers, so this is helpful.  If I weren't at work I'd try it right now.  Great tutorial too.   Grin

Is the patch you have on the outside of your bag "The squirrel on fire" Patch?  I know this sounds like a weird question, but if you know the image, it makes sense.  Either way, I love it.  Zippers intimidate me.  But I am going to save your tutorial for future reference.  Thank you.

I design my own appliques and it is a jumping kitty on the front of the bag:

That is such a funny little bag! I likes it!

Thanks for that tutorial, I am starting to do my Jordy bags (along with me Mum, who's the sewing expert... I just design the stuff hehe) and I know how essential inside pockets are, especially with zippers!

What's your applique made out of?  OH, nevermind, I saw the image, it's fabric tee hee  It's very cute though!
