Glitzy Bags - The right way and the other way!
I'm finishing the Glitzy Bags I started a while ago.
I had no trouble with the first three.
Number 4 was another story - those of you who enjoy tales of how I don't always do things right - STAY TUNED.
I sewed the zipper to the top of the bag correctly.
Then I sewed the sides shut as usual. I cut off the excess zipper.
I forgot to open the zipper before I sewed the sides shut and cut off the excess length of the zipper.
This meant I had also cut off the zipper pull.
What to do? Cut off the portion with the zipper.
Straighten up the top edge and sew another zipper to the bag. Fortunately I had a lot of red zippers.
You can see two of the finished bags at the beginning of this post. I'll be showing you more of them soon.
Have you seen the marquee at Wrigley Field recently? If you haven't I'm sharing it with you as a puzzle.
Will 2009 be the year the Cubs win the World Series? I think so.
