It's a zipper ya'll, and I did it all by myself! With some help from this tutorial, I mostly figured out how to make a zipper pouch. The good: it opens and closes and everything! The not so good: the top corners are rounded, lending it that homemade-but-not-in-a-good-way look. To give me a little bit of credit, I couldn't tell from the tutorial the proper way to sew over the zipper. The instructions said to "sew along the three sides" of both the lining and the outer fabric separately and never mentioned anything specific about what to do with that pesky zipper in the final finishing steps.Many, many more zippers to come.
