I've had a go adding zips to purses in the past but I wasn't happy with how the corners turned out. I never seemed to end up with square corners at each end of the zip.
Corners not very neat
I decided to try using zip covers as a way to sew up these purses to see if it made any difference
Zip covers attached
After hours and hours of practice I finally got it right and ended up making these cute little coin purses.
