The Easiest Ever - Progress

It took me a long time to be willing to attempt a zipper. Diane gave me lesson way back at Sewing Summit 2012 but I still didn't feel comfortable. Well the time has passed and I am ready to tackle this! Thanks to Kim over at Windsor and Main for creating the Easiest Sew Along Ever. You get to decide your own project and actually sewing (instead of just thinking about, planning for, putting on a sewing to do list) a pouch with a zipper in it is mine.

I am using the Perfect Zip Bags pattern by Elizabeth Hartman and a supplemental tutorial by Robie with step by step zipper instructions.  I need both.

Here is what I have gotten done so far:

The zipper tabs:

The front and lining prepared:

And one side of the zipper:
I am making progress.  More to follow on the finish!

  2. There is a free class on Craftsy for zippers by Sunni who was also at the Summit.

  3. This will be gorgeous! Excellent beginning!

  4. Your the best Julie! Your zipper bag is going to be adorable and I'm so glad you're enjoying this process! I am pressure, and it's so fun to meet everyone! I'm so glad you joined in! I'm looking forward to following your sewing adventures! XO, Kim :)

  5. Great start! Looks beautiful I love the fabrics you are using.
