oooo thank you so much, I need to learn how to do a simple zippered bag. Key word here is "simple".

That is so nice of you to show us how to sew with zippers.

Sandy said...

I just conquered this fear of mine- it was on my list of 'to learn' this year. I've now done a few of them, and am hooked! Can't wait to see your tutorial! Oh, and you must order your zippers thru zipperstop on ebay- they have the BEST prices, and ship from NYC super fast and great customer service!

I can't wait to see the tutorial. I used a great one when I made the Gnome Messenger Bag from Sew Liberated, but I'm curious to see your technique

Danielle said...

Thanks in anticipation Julie! I am just about to start my first birdie sling (also in Rouenneries!) and would love to see how to put in a zippered pocket.

Karin said...

Glad you finally decided how you wanted to do the pockets. I bet you will be happy to have your bags done.

Your tips are "sew" fabulous. I am in "stitches" over your success!! Keep up the great work.

Zippers are that horrible thing that all fear - but once done they are so great! Can't wait to see how easy you make it for us :) Your tutorial steps and photos are always great.
