finally! the lining and zipper for my pleated crochet bag is done 😀
it was a bitch to sew the zipper onto the lining. i read a few tutorials online and improvised a little. my workmanship could be better, but i guess practice makes perfect. it was my first time sewing on a zip anyway. 😛
the lining and zipper were sewn using machine and the whole thing was hand sewn onto the crocheted work itself. my handsewing skills need more practice too. hehe. i usually sew better if i’m making the bag for others. if it’s my own, i usually do not care so much. LMAO 😛
here’s my work!
machine sewn lining …. double sided 😛 the crocheted bag was done in double crochet so if i used the flower lining, it may show through the stitches. so i used a dark blue lining on the other side 😀
attached zipper & lining! tough work!
The bag with a zipper! 😀
It is so roomy! i can put all my stuff and more!
now i can go sleep and have happy dreams! 😛
