Here is the first step for your new purse project! After sewing all of the little strips together to make two sections, a front and a back, that are 7 1/2" by 9 1/2", fold under 1/2" at the top of each piece, and press with a hot iron. Slip a closed 7" zipper between the two pieces, as shown in picture, leaving about an inch on each end open. Pin as shown, using smallest pins you have. Stitch as close as possible without catching the teeth of the zipper, either by hand or by machine. Next step, tomorrow! This is my scrap purse.
