I love the zipper aisle in the craft store. I love all the subtle colors and that is what inspired this bag. I know what you're thinking, but it's not orange!! Don't worry, this one was for my sister-in-law who loves pink, you can see my orange one at the end of this post.
The size of the bag you want will decide how many zippers you need. I used 7 zippers, 4 different colors. The zippers were 16" long.
Line up the zippers with the zipper heads in alternating directions.
Sew the zippers together with a 1/4 inch overlap.
Keep overlapping the zippers as you sew them.
All the zippers sewn together.
Unzip 3 of the zippers about 3 inches.
Fold the zippers in half so the zipper heads are on the inside.
I pin the zippers, it makes them much easier to sew.
Sew around the 3 sides.
Do a couple of backstitches over the zippers to make sure they are going to hold together.
Trim the extras. And use one of the unzipped zipper holes to completely unzip another zipper and turn the bag right side out. (wow, say that 3 times fast!)
The best part is you can unzip any zipper to get into the bag!
The pink bag with my orange one. I used shorter zippers for the orange bag.
I made the orange bag a few years ago. It was my going out bag, now it holds my son's toys.
