The End of Zipper Nightmares!
Have you ever had the zipper pull come off of a project? Did it strike fear into your stitchy heart? I’ve been there, and it’s awful. In my many years of sewing, I’ve know one thing for sure – if the pull comes off, I’m done. Well, by the end of this class, you might just be looking for zippers to cut apart!

Here I am on the set at the end of the two-day shoot! Me with my Girls – hello lovelies!

Zippered Bags With A Twist class enrollment Includes:
The whole class is focused on my One-Zip zipper technique and my easy Pull-On trick to get the zipper pull on. For all three projects, cut the zipper to pieces, install one side flat and straight, then bend and add pulls to finish.

6 high def video lessons totaling 2+ hours of Lazy goodness

One of my absolute favorite Becca Bags is this Poker themed bag for holding cards and chips.

You know Sweetpea is sweet. She is the perfect size to hold treats. In the class, I share my tips for working with ripstop nylon for a moisture resistant lining.
