    big girl panty purse

    Posted this earlier and it never posted. I know there is a blog for this pattern and I have printed the entire thing out, worked on this for a month now and totally don't get it and not ruining anymore fabric and zippers. My question is, has anyone actually made a video and talks you through the process. That would be worth it's weight in gold. It is just the cutest little coin purse but can't get it to work.
    Thanks for any help

    Debbie added a PDF to the QB tutorial but I am not aware of any videos. It is tricky the first time you put the zipper in but after you do it once, you've got it.

    it is tricky, for sure. the way i got through it was to look at her picture at each step and to hold my item exactly as she has pictured it. sorry you are having the trouble

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Panty purse zipper

    I tried to find the post on difficulty figuring out the zipper in the Panty Purse tutorial posted by Debbie in QB tutorials. It must be in the non man's land of missing past posts. The first picture is how I prepare the focus fabric for my panties. I trace around my pattern, lay it on top of my batt, pin on the lace and stitch 1/8 inside the line around the panties. I cut out following the line.Name:  image.jpg

    that looks like a good idea... what did you need to know about the zipper?

    This picture is of the zipper pinned along the edge with the lining on top. I have it ready to sew along the pinned edges and the zipper will be sandwiched between the focus fabric outside and the white lining layer. It is perched open on top of my machine so you can hopefully see what I mean. Of course the pieces are pushed to one side when it goes under your needle so you sew one side at a time which the picture shows in Debbie's tutorial. Hope this gets you on your way to panty purse success. Name:  image.jpg

    QuiltnNan, someone else was having problems getting the zipper in but of course I can't pull up that post because I can't find it.
