- Stiletto such as By Annie is very helpful but not required (it is a great quilting tool as well)
- Marking tool of your choice suitable to mark your fabric.(you will want to have something that will show up on your fabric)
Fabric and zipper selection:
- If you are new to sewing zippers, selecting a color that matches your fabric and using thread the same color will help hide irregularities.
- This is a great place to use your leftover fabrics from a project and have fun mixing and matching. I used the same fabric for the binding, and zipper strips to make the four bags cohesive.
