    Default My new bag, not 1, but TWO zippers

    Zippers are my nemesis, but I was determined to conquer my fear of them. Finally found a small bag pattern that I liked, and wouldn't you know it required TWO zippers.

    I had Pat (Bubba) on speed dial in case I needed help, but i'm happy to say I didn't need to disturbed her beauty rest last night, but only because I could hear her voice in my head telling me "You can do this".

    I don't know about "mastered" (if you look closely you'll see my zippers are going in different directions - oops), but at least I'm not afraid of them anymore.

    The zippers going two different directions wasn't a mistake, it was so you knew which pocket you were getting in. Kind of like having two different colors. Nice bag

    Agree with the others, Very nice bag. You did a great job. Just think how proud you will be when someone asks, Did you put those zippers in?? and you can answer "YES" I think I have to find that pattern. Thanks for showing that with you bag picture. Good idea.
