    I had fun making this yesterday! First time ever making something with a zipper. I got the instructions off a youtube video. When I make more I will make the lining smaller (thanks Quilter7x). I ran out and got 4 more zippers!

    I love the zipper purse!

    How would you quilt one that has a lining? do you quilt it first, then put it together? because if you quilt it w/ the liner, then you couldn't have hidden seams inside ~ right?

    thanks. My husband likes the key rings that have a leather case around it so it doesn't wear his pockets out. I might try one of these and slip a ring on the inside to see how it turns out.

    I love little zipped pouches. They are good for tons of things! I need to make some more in different sizes - you just never know when you will need one of a different size!

    Very cute - and yes, they are addicting... make sure you hit your local thrift store... You can usually score a bag of zippers from time to time. I'm not fond of the metal ones since they are rough on the hands when you are pulling stuff out so I usually don't use those...

    Oh believe me, I do check my thrift stores first. LOL I had gotten the blue one and a tan one for a .25 cents each. I checked there first before I went to Joann's and forked over $1.50 for the 4" and 6" ones. Of course, I left my coupons home. lol

    It was painful the last time I bought zippers new... they are kinda on the expensive side! I have been blessed with getting a ton of them in the past but sadly I never seem to have the right color.... I actually have mine sorted in to 4 different sizes and put in to clear shoe boxes... it helps a little. I tried to sell a huge box of them on Craigslist but they didn't go. I'm planning on selling a ton of stuff on Ebay one of these days... all those metal zippers I have need to find a home!!
