Love the half-zip idea!  I made a little lined card-holder with it.  Thanks!

oh wow!
That is really neat!
Zippers scare me.. the few times I tried to put zippers in things, I messed them up.. I may have to try this though.. looks a lot easier.
Thanks for the tutorial! ^_^

I love this. I love making zipper pouches (particularly with custom-printed fabric) and doing all the sammiching/turning is a little tedious... Instantly, you eliminated half of that! Of course, this style introduces a whole new problem -- reinserting that damned zipper!

Like Sewer Rat said, don't give up. I used one of the small-coil plastic zippers, and a short one at that. After I cut the stops off, I put Fray-Check on the fabric ends to keep it from coming apart while I fiddled with it. And fiddle I did. It seemed to help if I kept the two sides aligned and close as possible -- just like when you're trying to zip up the side zip on a skirt; you hold the end down and squeeze the sides together, trying to keep it all flat. Eventually it went.

I made the outer in a vinyl (if any of you have seen my other posts lately, I seem to have a mild vinyl fixation) with a cotton lining done in the standard flip-through-lining method. I love it. It'll be great for printed panels because it'll be continuous around the folded edge. If I do any good ones, I'll post 'em here.
