Earlier in the year I stitched this pretty design by With Thy Needle and Thread, Forget Me Not Sampler, and I thought it would be perfect size to use on the front of a zippered project bag.
I haven't made one of these before, and I have never sewn a zip into anything, so with a friend's help recently I had a go. I didn't follow any particular pattern or instructions but I did browse around a few sites and Pinterest to get a general idea.
I'm really happy with the result - it's quite a large size, I think the zipper was at least 16 inches long but I didn't sew it to any exact measurements. The fabric is actually more teal, not as blue as these photos are showing. So sewing a zipper in is not as scary as I thought it would be!
