These continuous zipper purses are so much fun to make, and so many zipper colors available. I mad this first one for my mom!
I’ve tried making a few different flowers to go on the purse but in the end you make the purse the same way no matter how you finish it off.
So cute~ I think I’ll have to make myself a red one, and maybe a purple, oh, and the grey… Now that I’m out of the diaper bag (not out of diapers, just down to few enough changes each day that I don’t need the “suitcase” everywhere I go) I’m in love with a nice small purse!
I know it’s not super practical having a purse you can completely unzip, but SO cute and fun. Since I hadn’t made one before I took my time and lots of pictures.
First I folded the length that I wanted the bag’s width. Overlap the edges and sewed up to the point, folding it in and sewing that down too!
After that I unzipped the rest and wrapped it around, creating a corner and sewing over the end, folding another corner and then sewing down.
I will look like this. Just keep sewing the two sides together until it’s as long as you want it and end it the same way you started it, only backwards. Overlapping the ends first and doing the small point last. I also attached a zipper handle and sweet zipper flower.
This is what it looks like completely unzipped!Do NOT miss a single post.
