Zipper day.....


This post will be short and sweet......
 I had a zipper day yesterday and why you ask.... well I have seen so many people making project bags and after being given one by the lovely Sandi which  has been so handy I decided to make a few myself so yesterday I got everything ready and now I only have to do the bindings so hopefully the next post I will be able to show them finished.
