Now take the zipper head and unzip halfway so it is in the center of the bag. This can be tricky, so use pliers if you have to. This is so when you sew the sides closed, you're zipper head isn't stranded outside the bag! Once you’ve opened up the zipper, pin the 1 inch openings in the sides of the bag and the lining. Stitch the holes closed, making sure to lay the top seams towards the bag outer in the process.

    Wow that is a wonderful technique and a cute bag… do you use any pattern for a bag like that? It’s the cutest, ever! (Btw, I was an exchange student in Kansas City the last year… Missouri side. Woot woot!)
