How to Add a Zipper to your Emmaline Bag Pattern

Hello Bag Ladies!! (Who are not bags at all...!)
I've had a few requests for a zipper opening in the Emmaline Bag pattern.  Yes, I am a total dolt for not putting it in, in the first place, but that can't be helped.  I yam what I yam.

I'd just like to draw your attention to the perfect tutorial to help you with this... if you haven't found it already.  Emmaline Bags & Patterns: How to Sew a Zipper Opening in Your Purse or Handbag - A Tutorial

This tutorial shows you how to adjust your lining, cut, sew and install your own flash zipper gusset.  I hope this helps!

  3. I am planning on making the Emmaline when I get back from my trip. This looks like it would improve the design. No pickpockets can get in!
