Complete with an easy sew-in zip that the most terrified zip-sewer can conquer!
This post has A LOT of photos to guide you through the process, I hope they make the instructions easy to understand ::
To print the pattern simply click the picture, save to your computer and print. It fits onto one piece of A4 paper.
Cut out :: 2 purse pieces & 1 of each cupcake piece. You'll also need to pick
some co-ordinating ribbon, a button and a 4" zip.
On one of the purse pieces stitch the ribbon into position.
Stitch the ribbon to your cupcake piece.
Make sure the ends of the ribbon are tucked underneath and then they can't fray.
Pin you cupcake into position and stitch at right angles to the edge.
Pin your cupcake icing into position and again, stitch at right angles to the edge.
Sew your button on using a two strands of thread (it's stronger)
Once your purse is decorated it's time to conquer the zipper!
pin the zip to the decorated layer of your purse.
Carefully lay the two pieces on top of each other insuring the edges are lined up. Pin the two layers together.
Once your purse is all pinned together you need to adjust the pins that are holding your zip in position so they are also pinned through both layers. It's worth taking your time over this, making sure everything is nicely lined up and securly pinned.
