Zip Top Tote

Happy Monday!  I have been traveling and away from my blog for awhile.  I attended a sewing retreat in North Carolina and will be sharing more about that in the next few days. Today I want to share with you my latest project.  The "Zip Top Tote" pattern from Handmade Style by Anna Graham of Noodlehead.  I've been shying away from zippers for years and this bag not only has a top zipper but also a zippered inside pocket.  One of the things I learned at the retreat was how to install zippers. I still need more practice but am quite pleased with how this turned out.  The nautical print is by Cosmo Textiles and was purchased at Pink Castle Fabrics.  It's a fun and roomy tote, currently holding a quilt I'm working on, a magazine and a book.  I hope you are having a great day!


  1. What a great tote, I love the embellishment on the zipper and the beautiful fabric.

  2. Beautiful bag. Love the fabric and the special zipper pull :)!

  3. Love the bag. I too am taking on the zipper task :-)
