How to Make a Zippered Pocket


zippered pocket
I’m making a bag for my DH using the adorable Mischievous Gnome Messenger Bag by Montessori By Hand. One of the things I’ve learned in the process is how to make a zippered pocket – something I really wanted to learn but was too intimidated (until now) to try. So I’ve put together a little tutorial that just covers this basically simple detail – the perfect touch for your new purse or handbag!

  1. Very cool! And, may I borrow the pattern when you are done with it? Pretty please? I’ve been looking for a pattern like that.

  3. O.K. I’m a bit bummed. My comment 2 posts ago isn’t showing up. It got lost with the lost post. I’m serious. I really commented and it’s really not there!!!! Great posts. I’m impressed with the stick-to-a-tiv-ness of it all!!!!

  5. Ohhhh, I like that bag a lot. Can you show us more photos of the one you made? I’m amazed by people who sew. It is much more left-brained than I thought. Then I wonder, maybe I could do a bag?!

  7. H – I’m very sorry :u( My Web Guy (aka DH) says it must’ve been a fluke. As far as I know, all your other comments have shown up.
    Rebekah – I will definitely post more pics – I’m at a stalemate in my bag making right now – having problems with an order that I made.
