Knockout Zipper Bags

Love sewing bags but you see the word “zipper” and you’d rather rip out seams in denim?

I get it.  You know that sewing zippers is a big key to you getting somewhere with your sewing hobby but they’re such a pain.  If you’ve ever taken 3 hours to add in a zipper in a “30 minute” pattern, you know what I’m talking about.

What if you could practice sewing your zippers in 3 low-stress,  bright beautiful bags that you can actually make up in 30 minutes or less?  


Wouldn't it be cool if you had a way to practice sewing zippers that would boost your zipper sewing confidence and help you make a cute collection of practical, bright beautiful zipper bags?

ease your way into zipper sewing

I’ve ripped out a lot of zippers in my day.  It can be frustrating to work so hard sewing up a project to have it ruined by a wonky zipper.

Sewing a zipper in a garment can be a high-risk proposition.  Mess it up, and you can feel like a failure.  But when you sew simple bags, you have the freedom to practice working with zips without having to worry about the failure.  Shoot, if a zipper bag is a little off-kilter, it’s still gonna hold your favorite Prismacolors.
