You’ll also learn how to add a zipper to your project. I know zippers can seem daunting, but trust me it’s so easy you’ll be glad you gave it a go!

We’ll also be adding a fun inside pocket that you can customize to fit your needs. I like to put my knitting needles, extra scissors and stitch markers in here!
