This is my personal bestseller. I have made over 200 and have customized the design for various groups and companies. It's also a great gift idea!
You sew an 18-inch (opened) zipper around the edge of a printed panel (with company logo, family name, just a pretty design, etc.).
Then sew the zippered panel onto the front of the water repellent nylon tote bag.
Now you have, not only a pocket on the front of your bag, but also a tote bag that folds up into a little zippered pouch.
