It is sad sad about my personality that the first thought I had after reading Karen's post about her friends zipper stash was that I better go to the thrift store and get more zippers... But I nipped the thought and decided to use one instead.
Last night I was digging through my purse looking for a pill and thought, 'You should have a zippered lined bag for that.' So this morning I looked in my starred reader's folder and found red geranium's post about lined bags and actually read it then went and made a bag (if I'm rushed and don't have time to read I just star the post and then come back later and READ it instead of just look at the pictures! ;) ). It took longer than 15 minutes...about an hour since I pieced the front and back. The front is actually a strip of stripes that I had sewn together for my stripped quilt and then cut 1/2" too narrow; the black and white was already cut for the same project.
I used an invisible zipper and it worked okay but maybe a regular zipper would have neater corners? I turned it and then turned it back and made the lining 1/4 inch shorter than the bag and it lays better.
I'm happy with the bag and I've used another zipper!
