Remember those new spring plaids I mentioned? Well here’s one of them all sewn up and ready to go:
This bag has two slip pockets and one zipper pocket on the inside. It’s just like my other double strap hobo bags, with one pretty major difference. A zipper closure!
I made a little detachable zipper pull to go with it, and put a pull tab on either end of the zipper. The pull tabs fold over the side of the bag and tuck under the side ties. It’s in the shop now.
I’ve had a few requests from people for bags that have a zipper closure on the main compartment. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do, but kept putting off because I knew it would be difficult. Boy, was I ever right! This sucker was one heck of a puzzle, and it took me all day to figure it out. Now that it’s done, I’m super happy with the result and I can’t wait to make more of these. time to order more zippers!
