I cut two strips 4 inches wide and the length of the opening. I pressed under 1/2" on each long side, I then sewed across each short end, trimmed off the corners to reduce bulk and turned right side out. Press. This left the tabs about 1 1/2" shorter then the tote opening. I sewed in the zipper and then sewed the tabs 1 1/2" down from the top of the tote on each side.
I left the tail at the end of the zipper extra long so that the bag would be able to open as wide as possible. I added the tab for a firm grip when zipping the zipper!
Finally, here are my choices for my "Swoon QAL" with Fairy Face Designs! I am not sure why choosing fabrics for this quilt was so difficult for me, but here are my choices! The white is Kona White, and the others are from Joann's. I was trying to choose low volume colors.
I also finished the last of the bib/burp cloth creations for my upcoming grand baby! The burp cloths are from Gerber. The fabrics are all from my stash.
Here they are, all together!
