A Sewing Blog - Dream. BTW — I sewed the one in the video in 15 minutes if you take out video set up timeforgot to photograph any of it, and so then decided to sew the 3 in the photos. A zipper, at least 9 inches long.

Two outer fabric pieces, 9 in long x 7 in tall Two lining fabric pieces, 9 in long x 7 in tall Though I have listed these dimensions, remember that you can use this same technique to make these in ANY SIZE you want! OK, for those of you who prefer a video tutorial, watch the one below.
Center the zipper under your presser foot at that mark, and set your machine to a wide zig-zag with a very short stitch length. Cut the zipper so it is 9 in long.
Switch to a zipper foot on your sewing machine and stitch the zipper to the fabric. Match the other edge of the zipper right sides together with the other piece of outer fabric and stitch this side. Sandwich one long edge of the zipper between a piece of lining and the outer fabric it is already stitched to. Stitch again, along the same stitching line on the outer fabric, to attach this side of the lining.
If this part is confusing, this is where it might help to watch the video. Repeat with the other side of the lining.

This is what your pouch should look like on the outside. The whole really is more than the sum of its parts, I suppose! I have seen some tutorials for square cornered, flat bottomed, zippered purses phew. When I thought about it for a little while, I realised that if you just cut off the corners to create a flat bottomed purse they flare out at the top. I quite like the idea of the sides being straight up and down, rather than angling out to meet the zip.
So I pondered for a while and this is what I came up with: I hope I'm not being too confusing!! If I am, let's not worry too much! How about I just show you how to make the purse?
Just click on "Read More" for the full tutorial! Let's start with drafting the pattern You will need a large piece of paper I used two pieces of A4 paper stuck together and a ruler. I have designed this tutorial so you can make any sized purse you like. All you need to do is choose the width, height and depth of the purse you like. For my purse, I chose a width of 23cm, a height of 17cm and a depth of 10cm - big enough to fit my keys, wallet, phone and sunglasses.
Your completed pattern piece will look like this: I'll walk you through the steps: At the top of the paper mark out the width of the purse. These lines run down the page and will be the width of you completed purse. Next, divide the depth you have decided by 2. For me this was 5cm half the depth of 10cm.

Line up your ruler with the top edge of the paper on one of the inner lines. Draw a line that joins the lower ends of the lines you have made in step 3. Draw a line parallel to the line you have made in step 4. This line needs to be the width of the purse. I have marked in the final shape of your purse pattern. Mark in the seam allowance you like to work with.
For me this is 1cm.
There is only one little bit to watch. Have a look in the picture. I used two home dec weight fabrics and got away without using it.
I would have but didn't have any on hand. If you are using quilting weight fabric you will get a much better finish if you use it. The first steps to making this purse are exactly the same as a regular zippered purse.
Have a look here at our zippered purse with pockets tutorial for more details and pictures.
If you have not made a zippered purse before, I would suggest you read through the whole tutorial before you start.
