I showed you a few days ago how to Add a zippered pocket in your bag. Today’s zippered pocket tutorial shows an alternative way to do it.

The difference between the two methods is the finish inside the pocket : in method #1 the edges of the zipper tape remain visible inside the pocket while with the tutorial below the zipper will be sandwiched between the two fabrics, giving a cleaner finish. The exterior finish is the same whatever the method, the first method is easier.
