Cute fabic too. I love the multi-colored zippers and my goodness that bag holds a lot!
"The only thing it doesn't hold is my sewing machine :)"
Well..... if you make a really big one......
I've been coveting one of these bags for a while now. How hard is it?
Oh great job by the way. Love all the zipper colors.
Thanks y'all! I really enjoyed making it and will probably make more :)
@Seeneed- it's not that hard if you pay attention to the instructions. Here are over 80 pages of pictures and explanations. I read all of it to be sure I was doing it right, but I would not need to again. It took me about two days to make (but I also make civil war ball gowns in one day because I work on it for so long). There are more straight lines than anything, so if you can do a straight line, you could do this. It doesn't cost much either, so you should try it.
Note-- to make the price cheaper, I bought a pack of ten 9 inch zippers off of eBay for 99 cents. The only thing I didn't like about them was the fact that they measured the whole zipper as 9 inches. What I mean is, the zipper part is about 8 1/2 inches and the zipper tape extends to make it 9 inches. I would cover the end of the zipper with ribbon next time (see pics, the metal stoppers should be enclosed in the sides, with the measurement different they were to short)
