Learn how to sew a simple lined zipper pouch with an optional wrist strap that can double as a key fob. If you choose you can also turn this into a great cross-body bag!
Skills learned include how to insert a zipper, how to sew a seam and finish it, how to topstitch, and how to embellish with ribbon. You’ll also learn options for interfacing bags and how to install simple hardware.
