Lil' Zipper Bag Completed
I told you I needed to make one of these cute Lil' Zipper Bags.
I did make a couple of changes though. When I sewed my 1 1/2" strips, I did a sew and flip technique; that way I did not have to go back and stitch in the ditch. I used a pretty fabric for the inside instead of muslin.
All done sewing the strips on. Then I squared the strip set; and serged the edges.
I added my zipper and did an extra top stitching to hold the edge of the zipper tape away from the teeth - so I don't catch the fabric in the zipper.
I am sure that you have all been to Moda Bakeshop to view the tutorial on this bag.
