There are plenty of tutorials out there for zippered bags in all sizes. Take a look around the internet before trying this one. You may find another that more closely matches your style or work-flow. Not everyone works the same. I want you to enjoy creating!
What you'll need:
- 5" zipper
- outer fabric (I used canvas)
- lining fabric (any woven cotton will do)
- thread, scissors, sewing machine, iron, rotary cutter, mat and ruler
If everything went according to plan, you should be able to pull the outer fabric and lining pieces away from the zipper and open the zipper onto nothing. Press everything so those seams along the zipper are nice and pretty.
