2. join coin satchel zipper Lay your zipper right side up. Unfasten the zipper part way. Stick with the collapsed end toward the zipper pull. Line over the collapsed end, near the crease. My photo demonstrates a shorter tab. In the wake of making a couple of these totes I chose to make the tab slightly more. Your collapsed tab will be 1.5″ x 1″, instead of square (the tab indicated is 1″ x 1″).

3. Measure 4.5″ from the collapsed edge of the tab you simply sewed. Place the second collapsed tabl on the contrary end so that there is a 4.5″ length of zipper between the two tabs. Join over the zipper teeth a few times to make a protected zipper stop.

Also I like the tab to be 1/2″ when the satchel is done (sides are sewed together). You can see this best in the photograph at the highest point of the page – the yellow flower satchel. Notice the tab covers the finish of the zipper roughly 1/2″. I think it makes a pleasant wrap up.

Fasten over the upper edge, right sides togethe, utilizing a zipper foot. I line roughly somewhere between the edge and the zipper teeth, and I utilize a somewhat longer join length. Unfasten and hurdle as required as you fasten over.
