Day 19:: Zip It Up

bag1

I have feared a zipper for far too long. I came across this lovely little tutorial and thought, "I think I can do that!" If you too suffer from "zipper fear" fear no more. Follow her steps and you'll have yourself a little zipper bag in no time flat! This little one was whipped up just in time to wrap it up for my sister-in-law's birthday gathering last night.

To all of you who are loving that bag- it is wonderful! She did a great job and I love it!!! I was thrilled to be her first try on a zipper. I only wish my first try's turned out half as cute as Darbys! Thanks Darby- it really is great!! Can you make matching luggage? Ha- just kidding!

Perhaps, I fear the sewing machine too much. I have an Elna. Can you help me?

Once again, another great project! I can't wait for you to inspire us with some Valentine's Day projects. I sure hope you've got something up your sleeve!

I'm so glad you posted this! I love your blog and was just trying to talk myself into attempting a zipper. This tutorial will really help. I'm a novice seamstress for sure.
