    need a gift quick

    I'm looking for a quick and easy zippered tote to make for DS's girlfriend. She loves cats and I have some adorable cat fabric and thought I'd like to whip up a quick tote for her. I can't seem to find one with a zipper that I like. Any ideas????

    Did you find Jenny's zipper pouch tutorial didn't fit the bill?

    AMG just posted a tutorial from Craftsy that was a little zipper pouch. Her method of inserting the zipper was different from Jenny's but I think the methods are interchangable. Anyway, just a thought.

        What about Jenny's three totes in one tutorial? That sewed up quickly.

          I just made a lot of these for xmas:
          http://www.dogundermydesk.com/2012/1...pered-pouches/

          You could up size it, and put d-rings on both sides, then swivel clips on a long strap .

          I also bought several of her patterns - really well written w/lots of photos

                  Here's an easy zipper application that you can use for any tote.

                    Crafty Gemini has some tutorials, might be worth a look.

                      My favorite tote is one I made from watching Tara Rebman's Quilt as you go patchwork bags. It's worth the price of the class just to learn the neat way she installs zippers.

                          Thanks for all the great suggestions. In the end I used Jenny's 3 totes from 1 charm pack and Crafty Gemini's tutorial on how to put a recessed zipper in any tote. I thought that the zipper tut was a little cumbersome, but it worked ok. It tote/purse turned out well and she loved it, but alas....I forgot to take a pic before I wrapped it up.

                          Thanks again everyone
