Zipper Bags Simplified: Part 4 of 4

My edges lined up much nicer this time. Pin both layers together staying toward the center of the bag to prevent waviness in the edges.

Start by stitching at the top right hand corner. Sew about 1/2", backstitch the same amount, then continue stiching around the bag. Stop with your needle down in each corner and pivot the bag. Finish by back stitching the seam back and forward 1/2", reinforcing the as in the beginning. I use a regular machine foot and 2.5 cm stitch length in a straight stitch.




Continue to open the zipper the whole way, and turn the bag right side out. It's absolutely a Ta-Dah! moment for you.

It's always enlightening to hear your thoughts or suggestions. I try to respond in a timely manner, but admit life is very full here! I will return comments online if it's of general interest, but offline if a personal response is more appropriate. Give me a shout with anything urgent at julie@pinkdoxies.com, and I'll try to get right back with you. While I believe in free speech, spamming will not be tolerated, and as in all our interactions, speak kindly.

If you want to be certain of a personal reply, leave your email or email me privately. Many people are not even aware when they have become a no-reply blogger. Yes, I know it's frustrating for us all.
