Step 2: You'll Need

1/4 yard lining

1/4 yard fabric

4 colors of 1" wide ribbon (about 12" of each color)

Press your fabrics

Using a sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" paper as a pattern, cut out 1 piece of fabric and 1 piece of lining

Step 4:

Cut your ribbons to size and pin them in place on your outer fabric

Zigzag stitch them to the fabric

Step 5:

Place your zipper face down on the 8 1/2" edge of your fabric and stitch it in place

Take the other end of your fabric and stitch it to the other side of the zipper

Take your lining and place it on top of the zipper, lining it up with the fabric and stitch it across *You are sandwiching the zipper in between the fabric and the lining

Stitch the other side of the lining on the other side of the zipper.

Step 6:

This is what it should look like

Step 7:

Cut of the END of the zipper only

Stitch across that side of your bag using 1/2" seam allowance

Unzip the zipper to the middle of the bag

Stitch across the other side leaving a 2" hole (so you can turn it right side out)

Turn your bag right side out through the hole and stitch your 2" hole closed

Step 8:

Tuck the lining inside the bag and then press the fabric around the zipper!

You're done!
