I have made a fantastic little zippy-bag.
It's supposed to be a make-up bag, but I don't wear make-up, far better things to spend my time and money on.
Like wool :-)
I followed this excellent tutorial from the lovely Flossie Teacakes. Step-by-step photos and really clear instructions.
This beautiful fabric was a gift from the lovely Julie at button-button, perfectly pretty for a little zippy bag.
I was SO pleased with how well the zip went in. It's been a few years since I put in a zip and I have never done it this well before!! Very neat!!
My sewing machine did NOT like sewing over this big bunch of fabric and zip!!
A quick iron to tidy up the wrinkles...
I know the zip is not quite right. I think it was a bit too long. I have plans for another little bag using a slightly shorter zip that I have.
But, perfect or not, I love my little zippy bag. It currently has a pair of scissors, a tape measure and a pencil in it and is living in my knitting basket.
I think it is super.
