We all love our zipper bags, don't we?! I finished this one yesterday and was pleased with the overall results. I bought a kit for the zipper bag at Sew Lux Fabric which included the sewing machine pattern, fabric, and zipper. The sewing machine pattern was actually a pattern for a mini quilt, using four sewing machines. I'll be making that someday too.

The background fabric is actually a tan linen even though it may look more gray in this picture. The hand wheel and needle are actually gray.
