Featured is a zip-top purse I recently designed, shown here made with Essex Linen and other yummy fabrics which Annie sent me for this project:
Particular features to note are the wide opening at the top, and TWO pockets inside!! One slip pocket, one zip pocket.
You can customise the exterior however you want, and even change the inside pockets around to suit whatever purpose you have in mind.
You can find the tutorial here - zip top purse tutorial. If you have any questions or comments, do get in touch - I'd love to see what you make!
