I sewed right sides together sandwiching the zipper in between.
And sewed most of the way around.
And turned it right side out, then hand sewed the opening.
I would have top stitched it, but I didn’t have the right shade of pink and it would have been awkward to sew near the seams. I am really happy with how this turned out. I can’t wait to switch to my new purse. But I will wait until after the up-coming city wide rummage sales.
