Step 5: Sewing The Bag

Sew up the bottom and tie off the yarn tails securely.

Pin the zipper into place on one side. Make sure the bag is folded in half on the same stitch at the top and the bottom so it's not twisted.

Sew the zipper in place and bury the stitches into the center of the cast off row. Using back stitch will give you a secure finish.

Pin and sew the zipper onto the other side.

Tuck in the zipper tails, tack them into place with a few stitches if you'd like.
Interesting technique. I had at first thought you had knitted the whole bag and ombre dip-dyed it, but as you mentioned, this gives better control. Great work!
Wow! I love the handles on this one - they look so great with the blue. :)
