Well I bought some 4-inch zippers on Etsy several months ago and finally have time to try making some pouches. I bought a book the other day that has instructions on how to do a hidden zipper. The instructions are not for making a zippered pouch but are for creating a hidden zipper in clothing.
Sooooo, after following the instructions for insterting a zipper I winged the rest. The goal was to make a small coin purse and it is functional but the astetics are not what I had hoped. I decided to give it another try with a lighter fabric since the one I used before was a bit heavy. Still I didn't get the results I was looking for. So I am going to reach out into cyberland and see if someone out there can help....PLEASE!
