Sew Crafty Friday
I have been learning some new sewing skills. I wanted to make some zipper bags to match handbags I was selling in my Etsy Shop. I found some very good instructions on line and made these two.
The instructions stated that a zipper foot for your sewing machine was needed. I had a strange looking foot in my sewing box that I'd never used and decided it must be a zipper foot. LOL It was! It would have been extremely hard to sew the zippers without it.
I need to practice to perfect my new zipper sewing skill and I plan to put zippers in some of my hand bags soon.
Here are the on line instructions that I found: Zipper Bag Tutorial
Next week's new skill: Rag Quilt Hand Bags (I hope!)
