    need a little help

    Hi

    I just got back from the quilt shop and I bought material for my daughters handbag that she
    wants me to make.

    The front is the dark green with horse fabric as pockets. And the sky fabrics is the lining with the light green as inside pockets. And the very dark brown fabric is to be handles.

    My problem is that she wants pockets with a lid on the front. how do I do that ? and there will be a buttonhole in the lid to.

    And she want a sunken zipper to close the bag and the interior pockets is to be closed with velcro.

    So any tips on good youtube videos on how to make pockets with lids and installing sinken zippers. ?

    Any tips or tricks are welcome.


    I was so happy to see that my quilt shop has Angela Walters fmq rulers! I bought the one called Slim.
    That is the one for straight lines.

    Can not wait to try it out. ( Elbows . Heal up faster )

    I wish you all a very happy midsummer holliday !

    I can't help you about the handbag. But loved reading about the Midsummer. Very interesting, I hadn't heard of it. You have a lovely Midsummer. !

      Do you have a pattern in mind, or are you also looking for one of those?

          Mister Domestic has an inset zipper tutorial. You might find some of the other things on his you tube channel too.

            Hi

            I have no special pattern in mind. Thought I make a panel and fold it up like the letter U and then do the same with the lining.
            Similar to the charm pack bag Jenny has a tutorial on. An then box the corners.
