Adding zip to hidden pocket – Nelly Tote.

 

To be used in conjunction with the Nelly Tote pattern.

Place Zipper face down between the main panel and hidden pocket lining, pin in place, making sure the open end is in line with where the zipper closes. You don’t want there to be an opening after the zipper closes when the pocket is complete.

The picture below shows where I have placed the zipper, you can always use a longer zipper and move it higher to keep the metal stopper out-of-the-way of any further stitching.
