Christmas Bag

Added Dec 26, 2007

A simple bag I cut without a pattern. I’m proud of the result beacuse it was only my second bag and I added a zipper on it. Is it normal that I had to finish attaching it by hand or should I be able to do it all by machine??

Material Notes

strong cotton

    Love how you cleverly matched the pattern on the pocket to the pattern on the bag. Great job.

    The zipper would depend on how you put it in. If you sewed it into a lining which you then sewed into the bag, you’d do it all by machine. If you were adding it after you sewed the bag, you’d have to do it by hand.

    Google bag zipper tutorial. There are loads of videos.
