You’ll also learn how to add a zipper to your project. I know zippers can seem daunting, but trust me it’s so easy you’ll be glad you gave it a go!

We’ll also be adding a fun inside pocket that you can customize to fit your needs. I like to put my knitting needles, extra scissors and stitch markers in here!

  1. You are amazing!! Your tutorials are so easy to follow and super cute projects!! I made a cute zipper bag for my granddaughter and she loves it!! Do you have any tutorials for diaper bags? I have more grandchildren coming and would love to give as a gift for my daughter and daughter-in-law.

  2. I just completed this bag and followed the video. My outer pocket is inside out. What did I do wrong. I sewed it to the body right sides up. I’m really disappointed . This was a lot of work for something that’s going in the garbage.
