inset zipper success

I just learned how to install an "inset zipper" in a bag lining!
This means that the opening floats in the middle of a piece
of fabric without additional seams around it. The zipper
just discreetly points the way to a little, hidden pocket.
 To get here, I followed Lisa Lam's tutorial. Very helpful
and clear, as is everything she writes on
Thanks, Lisa!


  1. Nice job Sue! I love the fabric!

  2. Thanks, Dawn!! This liner is going into a shimmery brown brocade bag; I think it'll be a fun combo!
