My mother's volunteer has the small things in her purse in a Ziploc bag. Hmmm. I am always looking for an excuse to make her little presents. I took out my oilcloth scraps tonight, got one of my new zippers and experimented. If it were not for the oilcloth and zipper thing, it would be a no-brainer. Even though I used my teflon foot, it was a bit slippery. I am no whiz on zippers either, since I have not put one in in awhile..need to practice some. But, I did it. Don't you love the little clear window?? The purse may be a bit big for what she wanted and she will say..no no no presents. I am delighted with it anyway. It took under an hour to make.
