Thank you. I have wanted to know how to do this for a very long time but have been too intimidated to make that initial slice without proper instructions.  I copied your instructions and made little illustrations in my project book for future reference. So damn handy.

In the last picture you have folds in the pocket where it is attached to the zipper. Does this help the pocket hold things better, by balooning it out slightly? I'm constantly confounded by the "square fabric-round world" dilemma when making bags. Does anyone else have any other advice for making flat pockets more functional?

I just wanted to show my appreciation for this tutorial; I've used it in the past and never commented on it.  It's great and I find it a lot simpler to do than the others ones I've seen Cheesy Thank you sooo much!  Very clear, easy tutorial!

By the way, I never liked your face.

Hey, great tute!

I just used it to put a zipper pocket into lining for the first time ever - yay!  It's only on a trial calico bag, bag I think I'm making up the proper bag tomorrow and now there will definately be a inside pocket, thanks to sushimifune. Wink

first let me say that these instructions are perfectly clear and simple [so i don't sound like i'm complaining!] but argggh i've been trying to get it for...at least an hour and had to tear it apart three or four times.  i don't know what i'm doing wrong.  first the slit is too big, just a little bit, but enough so that there's extra that's pretty obvious.  and then those little points started to fray.  and somehow i kept sewing things onto themselves or other parts they weren't supposed to be sewed on to, even though i was very careful to flip the pocket to the other side to make sure i wouldn't close it.  aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh.  i don't have enough of my fabric left to cut out another piece and try again, so i think i'm just gonna can it for tonight before i rip it all to shreds and try again with a different fabric tomorrow.   Sad

I LOVE these zipper instructions! I have been sewing things by hand until i can afford a sewing machine and this tutorial was easy to adjust to hand stiching. The only bad thing is that it takes me almost an hour to hand stich one Sad. thanks again!

I sort of followed this tute to put a zipper pocket in a messenger bag I made for the Floral Bag Swap. The only problem was, the messenger bag didn't have a center seam on the sides, so instead of being a divider down the middle, it was shifted to the side.

I was still pretty happy with it though!

The rest of the bag can be seen here:
