Zip zip

Just finished take two on a self-zipping purse.  It's a bit of an odd name as you'd almost expect the purse to know when you needed to get at your money and unzip itself, but when you look at the purse's structure it makes more sense.  The instructions were courtesy of Craft Passion, referenced by the ever-fabulous How about orange.

I lined this one (with ribbon, rather than a strip of fabric as I didn't want to have to fold the seam allowance) and it does give it more structure (I hadn't thought the unlined version lacked structure, but it's a welcome addition).

Today is chief niece's birthday - hope she likes it.
