Being on vacation for the last couple weeks, I haven't been able to work on my bag for Purse Palooza until today. Let's ignore that laundry and unpacking ok?
I had my exterior and lining piece ready for assembly. The bag is going to have a zipper closure so the first thing I did was to sew the zipper on. I needed to use my walking foot, my previous attempts with the zipper foot with this faux leather failed.
Luckily my zipper was a few inches longer than my bag so I could move the zipper head completely out of the way. I then moved my needle to the right so I could get closer to edge. The bag is assembled similiar to a zipper pouch. But instead of sewing wrong sides together to the zipper, I turned the edges and then top stitched to the zipper.
