Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Thank you for putting up with dial up!
This is a great tute. I can imagine how difficult it is to post on dial up. I already sewed my liner and outside pieces, but have not sewn them together, is it too late for me to do this? I saved a tute about adding a separating zipper that can be added after the tote is completed. I didn't save it in youtube though so I can't share it, I think I saved it in files on my other PC.
In the denim purse I'm sewing -- loosely adapted from a Bowtucks pattern -- I sewed very strong magnets into the top of the outside (lined) part of the purse. The two sides will snap together, hope they still do once I get the lining in there.
I also have a metal tape measure I may use on another pocket to help it snap shut. I modified the pattern when I sewed actual pockets on the outside from jeans, and created several measured pockets on the inside to hold my "stuff", sort of like a kangaroo insert.
they are very easy to make and zipper easy to put in. they come in a larger size also designed by penny sturges

I've had the pattern for almost two years and haven't tried it yet but I think now it's time! Great tut!
Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes.
Thank your tute will be very useful for the next Bow Tucks I make... have thought about a zipper -- now I can do it.... thank you
