How To Sew Zipper Pocket

sew zipper pocket

I made a bag recently…. before I let you see the bag [update: it is here], I wish to show you how I sewed the pockets inside, both zipper pocket and 2-tier slip pocket with 6 compartments (coming soon, updated).

Want a zipper pocket to show only the zipper and not the outline of the pocket’s seams? This is the tutorial you are looking for. A zipper pocket without a side sewn line gives a classy touch for a fine bag.

  10. Thanks so much for this! I just made my mother a tote bag with polka dot lining and was dying to have a internal pocket inside, I don’t think a bag is the same with a zipped pocket and I had no idea how to go about adding one. The bag turned out great and the zip looks so professional that she probably won’t believe i made it! Its all down to your instructions!
