How to Sew a Lined Zipper bag - Easy Zipper bag FREE Tutorial - How to attach zipper (bag with lining)

1. Materials.

a. Zipper
b. Strip (1″ x 12″) for handle.
c. Outer fabric of bag. 5″ x 7″. Do not forget allowance.
d. Lining. 5″ x 7″. Again, do not forget allowance.

2. Lay out your lining (right side up), zipper (right side up) and outer fabric (wrong side up) on top of each other.

3. Pin and sew.

4. Now, you will have something that looks like this:

5. Lay your other lining (right side up) under the other edge of your zipper (right side up). Put the other outer fabric on top, wrong side up. 

6. Pin and sew. At this point, your bag will look like this: 

7. Open the zipper halfway. 

8. Bring the outer fabrics together, right sides kissing. Do the same to the lining. Your zipper would be in the middle.

9. Pin. Insert your handle near where your zipper opens. Insert it between the two outer fabrics, not the lining.

10. Sew. Leave a little area in the lining open, for turning your bag inside out.

11. Turn your bag inside out. Your bag will look like it has a reversed zipper. Do not worry. This is the reason you zipped it open in the first place. 

12. Just turn it inside out again, pulling the outer fabric out.
