Sew Together Bag Sewalong
Before we start this next section, you will want to trim any excess zipper material from the top and bottom of your project.
Place your project face up as shown on section 4 of your pattern. Place your ruler so that the center of the zipper lies directly under the 3 1/4" mark.
Using a frixion pen or air eraseable marking pen, draw a line on the sections as illustrated in section 4 of your pattern.
When the 3 sections are marked, pick up your project by the first zipper:
Make sure all 4 layers are nice and taut, line up the sides, and secure with a pin on each side.
Sew through all 4 layers along the marked line.
Repeat with the other 2 zippers.
Your project will now look like this:
Now, taking one zipper pocket at a time, zig zag down each side starting at the marked line stitch and sewing toward the zipper.
Use a fairly narrow zig zag so it doesn't show in your seam allowance later.try to keep mine at about 1/8" inch.
Repeat for all 3 zipper pockets (six sides total). Your project now looks like this:
Tomorrow we will attach our side panels. Leave a comment and let me know how the zippers went for you yesterday - I'm dying to know!
