Do you suffer from zip avoidance syndrome? Here is the perfect therapy from "Dr. Nicole". I recently ordered some of the little zippered purse kits available through her blog/website and have been merrily zipper-ing away since receiving them (which was very soon after ordering thanks to the super fast service).
Here are a couple of examples made from the Make Up Purse Kit instructions. Fabrics in a heavier weight cotton/linen mix worked well for a bit of extra stability and I just kept it simple by lining with calico. I know there are lots of zippered purse tutorials out there but these kits are value added. You get a variety of zips (no need to trek to Spotlight), full sized pattern pieces (no need to measure) and excellent directions with tips on how to get those sneaky zip ends looking "just-so", how to do a nice boxed corner etc.
It's hard to stop at one and practice makes perfect, as they say.
Before wrapping up some thank-yous are due to:
