I'm so happy to show off my new tote bag! I love the way it came out. The pattern can be found at Moda Bake Shop. I followed the directions which were well written and made sense to me. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to add the zipper but I did it!
Here's a picture of the inside. I have the zippered pocket on the right and a 3-compartment pocket on the left. Everything lines up and works! The directions called for a 10 inch zipper but I could only find a 9 inch zipper. I know you can cut down zippers but I figured the one inch difference wouldn't really matter and I wouldn't have to fuss with cutting it. It worked out fine!
I can't wait to start using it. I'll probably have to wait until this storm is over that's been forecast for tomorrow. I'm hoping to finish another project since I'll be stuck inside. I'm so grateful to have the day off tomorrow. I'll be happy to stay indoors and sew! Stay safe out there!!
