Plus, Learn a Nice Finish for a Zipper!
This charming bag may look similar to others you’ve seen but the innovative construction creates a more polished finish. There are no pesky corners or baggy lining to deal with. Instead, the lining fits precisely, the corners are crisp and fabric tabs finish off the zipper ends.
Plus, it’s easier to make than other designs and is great in any color theme. You may find yourself making several for yourself and to give.

One aspect we really appreciate is the excellent instructions for creating fabric-covered ends for the zipper. This technique can be used any time you need to shorten a zipper for a bag, pillow cover, or another project.
The finished bag, designed by Tessa from The Sewing Chick, is about 9″ wide at the top x 4.25″ tall.

It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
