I have struggled with zippers on my bags. I have just never been able to figure out how to put them on in an easy way. So, every time I make a bag that closes with a zipper, I swear I will never make another.
Here is a bag I made this week that closes but without a zipper. Maybe I can get figure out how to easily make these so I won’t miss zippers.
Here it is, with the sides folded over and buckled in front.
Here is what it looks like when unbuckled. It holds just as much stuff as my regular bags.
Here it is open so you can see the Velcro I used to keep the upper edges apposed when it is buckled up. This is the first time I have used Velcro on a bag.
