Zippers! Something from my 2013 list!

On my 2013 To Do list: zipper bags!

I cut the fabric and sewed the exterior panels (some of which are made of two different patterned cottons),



fused lightweight interfacing to the outside fabric panels,


and now sewed the zippers (half done)!!

(The fabric is Flea Market Fancy by Alexander Henry, plus a chevron and a plain white cotton for one of the bag’s linings. My zippers are from here on Etsy. Best prices of anywhere I found, plus LOTS of color and size choices.) I looked at a billion different tutorials and then just got sewing. A bunch of the tutorials are on my “Sewing” pinterest board, in case you want to check them out. I’m also participating in a zipper pouch swap, so there’s this board for inspiration, too.
