How To Sew an Inner Zipper Pocket I have tried several ways to sew in internal zipper pockets. I need one in every bag and I want at least one to be in every bag I make for my shop.

One of those pockets was the zippered welt pocket. In the writeup, I mentioned (in para 3 of that post) that the method demonstrated was not the usual one I used to make that kind of pocket but I went ahead anyway because it was a short-cut version that could be finished in a few, easy-to-visualize steps.

creative little daisy: Don't fear the zipper Zippers seem to be the boogyman of sewing. The monster under the bed that puts fear in the hearts of sew-ers.
