Giftable Projects: Zippered Bags & Purse Organizer
01: Project Supplies & Wrist Strap
Meet Svetlana and get started with an overview of the projects and the materials and supplies you'll need, including quilting cotton and zippers. Then begin sewing, making a wrist strap for the Easy Coin Pouch (or any of the bags in this class).
02: The Easy Coin Pouch
Complete the Easy Pouch with a 5-inch metal zipper, outside pocket, and tab with decorative snap.
03: The Two-Zip Pouch
Build your skills with the Two-Zip Pouch, using two 7-inch metal zippers (for this project, you could also use polyester or nylon zippers). Create a zipper pocket with zipper tabs, and be sure to use a colorful fabric for the pocket lining for a surprise every time you open it.
04: Keep-It-Neat Purse Organizer: Part One
Start with a tour of the features of the Get-It-Together Purse Organizer. You'll use all the skills you've already learned to put this together, starting with adding binding strips to pockets and adding a contrasting fabric pocket with dividers and a mesh pocket to the outer front panel.
05: Keep-It-Neat Purse Organizer: Part Two
Add a zipper pocket to the front panel by drawing a rectangular opening, stitching the pocket lining to the bag, and cleverly pulling the pocket lining through. Then construct the outer back panel with a snap pocket.
06: Completing the Keep-It-Neat Purse Organizer
Complete the purse organizer by making divided slip pockets for the lining, or inner bag, adding another zipper pocket and the main top zipper, and putting outer bag and lining together and stitching, turning, and pressing. Add zipper pulls and you're ready to go! You'll never dread forgetting something when you switch bags again.
