Instructions For Making Zippered Bags

I’m posting instructions for making zippered bags since I’ve received requests about how I make my bags.

I make zippered bags two ways – one using zipper tape which gives a very nice finish to the bag:

I also make bags using zippers:

The bags look similar, however, I prefer using zipper tape because it simplifies the process.

I purchase my zipper tape from The Zipper Lady who sells the tape by the yard in a gazillion colours – she also sells zipper pulls.

She has video demonstrating how to put the slides onto the tape.

Hope this helps you out.

  2. Thanks, Judith! For posting such clear and understandable instructions for these bags. I met The Zipper Lady at the Sew Expo in Worcester (MA) this year- what a marvelous story she has to tell! About how she has become the Zipper Lady.. Hope you have a nice holiday season. Pat
