A Zipper Pocket Tutorial.

Last week I made a travel tote that can sit in the car with snacks and supplies mostly because when I run out the house I literally forget everything.  So I decided to make a bag—keep it in the car—and then it will be there when I need it.  (Well, that is the plan……I feel like I am so forgetful sometimes as a mom….I don’t know at what number child it happend but I really feel like I lost half my brain cells.)
By the way, this tote is huge….like carry 5 beach towels and all the swimsuits huge (you can’t tell from the picture).  I was just eyeballing it and cutting and it just kind of came out huge…..don’t ask why….I don’t have a good answer.  Maybe in the summer when I am actually going to the pool I will appreciate its sheer magnitude.
But, while I was making the tote I decided to put in an inside zipper pocket to carry my wallet if I needed too.
And while I didn’t take any pictures of making the tote (sorry, you’re on your own for that part—I know I am lame) I did remember as I was making the lining to get the camera out and snap a few pictures as I was doing the inside pocket.
Here’s how I do it….
(Use the zipper to make the rectangle—-sorry I wasn’t more clear.)
 (By the way, the beginning steps are the same for making a welt pocket if you interested….)
Easy Peezy!  Have a great Wednesday everyone!!!!

    Can you give the dimensions on the enormous travel tote? Some of us other moms might need one just as big, especially when taking family trips! It turned out beautiful.
