How to Sew a Recessed Zipper on a Bag
I've been working on some new bag ideas and one of the areas of bag-making that has been a bit of a puzzle to me until recently is how to close the top of the bag. Of course, not all bags need to be closed. Some simple tote bags are left open, and that's just fine.
I was up for a challenge and looking forward to learning something new so I've got a video for you today on how to add a recessed zipper to a bag.
You can pretty much add this to the top of any bag which has a lining, so even if the pattern doesn't call for it, you can split the lining and add in the recessed zipper. Just remember to place any inside pockets accordingly.
