Add a Recessed Zipper to a Tote - Stitch Lab Blog

The folks at Stitch Lab Blog show us how to sew a recessed zipper into a basic (and gorgeous) tote bag, turning it into a fantastic shopping bag or weekly errand tote. We usually add a zippered closure to the top of a bag to keep belongings secure inside, going without the risk of having everything tumble out if the bag tips over. A zippered main/top closure is a good idea when you have a bag without enough body and sturdiness to hold itself straight and tall.
