Bags With Zips

Then there was cashmere with a zip.

Here are a few of the bags I’ve been working on with zipper closures. This one is cashmere, a lovely thickly felted plum.

The lining is linen, and the zip is 'housed' in the sleeve cuffs.

I fell in love with this bag. A nice bucket-ey shape in green merino with holes that I found after I made the bag.

I panicked, and then patched them with tiny matching standing wool flowers. The lining is a vintage pillowcase.

And I'm starting to get the hang of it. No more dreading the zipper thing.
